Ning, Thanks for looking into this. A couple of minor comments:

> There are regressions in sort-merge map join after HIVE-741. There are a lot of OOM exceptions
in SMBMapJoinOperator. This caused by the HashMap maintained for each key to remember whether
it is NULL. This takes too much memory when the tables are large. 
> A second issu is in handling NULLs if the join keys are more than 1 column. This appears
in regular MapJoin as well as SMBMapJoin. The code only checks if all the columns are NULL.
It should return false in match if any joined value is NULL.
