HBASE-3468 Broke checkAndPut with null value

                 Key: HBASE-3793
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3793
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: regionserver
    Affects Versions: 0.92.0
            Reporter: Lars George
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 0.92.0

The previous code called Bytes.equal() which does a check for "null" on the left or right
argument. Now the comparator calls Bytes.compareTo() - which has no check for null. But this
is a valid input and checks for existence. I actually noticed this running 


This used to work, now it throws an NPE

Easy fixable, just needs to handle the null value before even calling comparator.compareTo().
