Date Thu, 20 Feb 2014 01:45:20 GMT


Prasanth J updated HIVE-6382:

Earlier patch was not compiling clean as conf object of some orc reader interface was missing.
Fixed it in this patch.

> In PATCHED_BLOB encoding (added in HIVE-4123), gapVsPatchList is an array of long that
stores gap (g) between the values that are patched and the patch value (p). The maximum distance
of gap can be 511 that require 8 bits to encode. And patch values can take more than 56 bits.
When patch values take more than 56 bits, p + g will become > 64 bits which cannot be packed
to a long. This will result in data corruption under the case where patch values are >
56 bits.
