Review request for hive, Brock Noland, justin coffey, and Xuefu Zhang.

Repository: hive-git

Description (updated)

The issue is, as part of select * query, a DeepParquetHiveMapInspector is used for one column
of an overall parquet-table struct object inspector.  

The problem lies in the ObjectInspectorFactory's cache for struct object inspector.  For performance,
there is a cache keyed on an array list, of all object inspectors of columns.  The second
time the query is run, it attempts to lookup cached struct inspector.  But when the hashmap
looks up the part of the key consisting of the DeepParquetHiveMapInspector, java calls .equals
against the existing DeepParquetHivemapInspector.  This fails, as the .equals method casted
the "other" to a "StandardParquetHiveInspector".

Regenerating the .equals and .hashcode from eclipse.  

Also adding one more check in .equals before casting, to handle the case if another class
of object inspector gets hashed to the same hashcode in the cache.  Then java would call .equals
against the other, which in this case is not of the same class.





Manual testing.
