> It is currently impossible to get partial results in mapreduce mapper jobs.
> When setting setAllowPartialResults(true) for scan jobs, they still fail with OOME on
large rows.
> The reason is that Scan field allowPartialResults is lost during job creation:
>   1. User creates a Job and sets a scan object via TableMapReduceUtil.initTableMapperJob(table_name,
scanObj,...) -> which puts a result of TableMapReduceUtil.convertScanToString(scanObj)
to the job config.
>   2. When the job starts - method TableInputFormat.setConfig retrieves a scan string
from config and converts it to Scan object by calling TableMapReduceUtil.convertStringToScan
- which results in a Scan object with a field allowPartialResults always set to false.
> I have tried to experiment and modify a TableInputFormat method setConfig() by forcing
all scans to allow partial results and after this all jobs succeeded with no more OOME and
I also noticed that mappers began to get partial results (Result.isPartial()).
> My use case is very simple - I just have large rows and expect a mapper to get them partially
- to get same rowid several times with different key/value records.
> This would allow me not to worry about implementing my own result partitioning solution,
which i would encounter in case the big amount of result key values could be transparently
returned for a single large row.
> And from the other side - if a Scan object can return several records for the same rowid
(partial results), perhaps the mapper should do the same.
