Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-5587) Remove dns.interface configuration options

think they're actually used, nor am I convinced bypassing the host for DNS lookups is a good
idea (leads to painful bugs where default Java DNS lookups differ with these lookups). HBase
started using these via a similar feature in HBASE-1279 and HBASE-1279.

I filed HADOOP-8156 to remove the API which HBase uses, which is obviously an incompatible
change and would need to be worked around here if you wanted to keep this functionality in
HBase, ie *if* that were to get checked into Hadoop we'd first need to get you on your own
DNS class. Either way I'll update DNS' InterfaceAudience annotation to indicate HBase is a
