> The OutStream class used by the ORC file format seems to aggressively allocate memory
for ByteBuffers and doesn't seem too eager to give it back.
> This causes issues with heap space, particularly when a wide tables/dynamic partitions
are involved.
> As a first step to resolving this problem, the OutStream class can be modified to lazily
allocate memory, and more actively make it available for garbage collection.
> Follow ups could include checking the amount of free memory as part of determining if
a spill is needed.
