This is really two separate patches in one, though with some overlapping changes.  If necessary
I can split them apart for separate review.  Please let me know if that would make review

Part 1:
Port over of HADOOP-6422 to the HBase RPC code.  The goal of this change is to allow alternate
RPC client/server implementations to be enabled through a simple configuration change.  Ultimately
I would like to use this to allow secure RPC to be enabled through configuration, while not
blocking normal (current) RPC operation on non-secure Hadoop versions.

This portion of the patch abstracts out two interfaces from the RPC code:

RpcEngine: HBaseRPC uses this to obtain proxy instances for client calls and server instances
for HMaster and HRegionServer
RpcServer: this allows differing RPC server implementations, breaking the dependency on HBaseServer

The bulk of the current code from HBaseRPC is moved into WritableRpcEngine and is unchanged
other than the interface requirements.  So the current call path remains the same, other than
the HBaseRPC.getProtocolEngine() abstraction.

Part 2:
The remaining changes provide server-side hooks for registering new RPC protocols/handlers
(per-region to support coprocessors), and client side hooks to support dynamic execution of
the registered protocols.

The new RPC protocol actions are constrained to org.apache.hadoop.hbase.ipc.CoprocessorProtocol
implementations (which extends VersionedProtocol) to prevent arbitrary execution of methods
against HMasterInterface, HRegionInterface, etc.

For protocol handler registration, HRegionServer provides a new method:

  public <T extends CoprocessorProtocol> boolean registerProtocol(
      byte[] region, Class<T> protocol, T handler)

which builds a Map of region name to protocol instances for dispatching client calls.

Client invocations are performed through HTable, which adds the following methods:

  public <T extends CoprocessorProtocol> T proxy(Class<T> protocol, Row row)

This directly returns a proxy instance to the CoprocessorProtocol implementation registered
for the region serving row "row".  Any method calls will be proxied to the region's server
and invoked using the map of registered region name -> handler instances.

Calls directed against multiple rows are a bit more complicated.  They are supported with
the methods:

  public <T extends CoprocessorProtocol, R> void exec(
      Class<T> protocol, List<? extends Row> rows,
      BatchCall<T,R> callable, BatchCallback<R> callback)

  public <T extends CoprocessorProtocol, R> void exec(
      Class<T> protocol, RowRange range,
      BatchCall<T,R> callable, BatchCallback<R> callback)

where BatchCall and BatchCallback are simple interfaces defining the methods to be called
and a callback instance to be invoked for each result.

For the sample CoprocessorProtocol interface:

  interface PingProtocol extends CoprocessorProtocol {
    public String ping();
    public String hello(String name);

a client invocation might look like:

    final Map<byte[],R> results = new TreeMap<byte[],R>(...)
    List<Row> rows = ...
    table.exec(PingProtocol.class, rows,
        new HTable.BatchCall<PingProtocol,String>() {
          public String call(PingProtocol instance) {
            return instance.ping();
        new BatchCallback<R>(){
          public void update(byte[] region, byte[] row, R value) {
            results.put(region, value);

The BatchCall.call() method will be invoked for each row in the passed in list, and the BatchCallback.update()
method will be invoked for each return value.  However, currently the PingProtocol.ping()
invocation will result in a separate RPC call per row, which is less that ideal.

Support is in place to make use of the HRegionServer.multi() invocations for batched RPC (see
the org.apache.hadoop.hbase.client.Exec class), but this does not mesh well with the current
client-side interface.

In addition to standard code review, I'd appreciate any thoughts on the client interactions
in particular, and whether they would meet some of the anticipated uses of coprocessors.

This addresses bugs HBASE-2002 and HBASE-2321.
