--------------------------------------

             Summary: Modify cell tag handling code to treat the length as unsigned
                 Key: HBASE-11437
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11437
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Anoop Sam John
            Assignee: Anoop Sam John
             Fix For: 0.99.0, 0.94.5


We store each tag's length and total tags length with 2 bytes in KeyValue buffer, HFiles etc
and we treat these lengths as short through out the code.  So the max length can be Short.MAX_VALUE.
  We can treat these lengths as unsigned and +ve always.  So we can actually treat these lengths
as int and store with 2 bytes so that the max length can reach 65535.
