> When the same KeyValue object is used multiple times for deserialization using readFields,
some methods may return incorrect values. Here is a sequence of operations that will reproduce
the problem:
>  # A KeyValue is created whose key has length 10. The private field keyLength is initialized
to 0.
>  # KeyValue.getKeyLength() is called. This reads the key length 10 from the backing array
and caches it in keyLength.
>  # KeyValue.readFields() is called to deserialize a new value. The keyLength field is
not cleared and keeps its value of 10, even though this value is probably incorrect.
>  # If getKeyLength() is called, the value 10 will be returned.
> For example, in a reducer with Iterable<KeyValue>, all values after the first one
from the iterable are likely to return incorrect values from getKeyLength().
> The solution is to clear all memoized values in KeyValue.readFields(). I'll write a patch
for this soon.
