> Currently, on the Spark branch, each thread it is bound with a thread-local IOContext,
which gets initialized when we generates an input {{HadoopRDD}}, and later used in {{MapOperator}},
{{FilterOperator}}, etc.
> And, given the introduction of HIVE-8118, we may have multiple downstream RDDs that share
the same input {{HadoopRDD}}, and we would like to have the {{HadoopRDD}} to be cached, to
avoid scanning the same table multiple times. A typical case would be like the following:
> {noformat}
>      inputRDD     inputRDD
>         |            |
>        MT_11        MT_12
>         |            |
>        RT_1         RT_2
> {noformat}
> Here, {{MT_11}} and {{MT_12}} are {{MapTran}} from a splitted {{MapWork}},
> and {{RT_1}} and {{RT_2}} are two {{ReduceTran}}. Note that, this example is simplified,
as we may also have {{ShuffleTran}} between {{MapTran}} and {{ReduceTran}}.
> When multiple Spark threads are running, {{MT_11}} may be executed first, and it will
ask for an iterator from the {{HadoopRDD}} will trigger the creation of the iterator, which
in turn triggers the initialization of the {{IOContext}} associated with that particular thread.
> *Now, the problem is*: before {{MT_12}} starts executing, it will also ask for an iterator
from the
> {{HadoopRDD}}, and since the RDD is already cached, instead of creating a new iterator,
it will just fetch it from the cached result. However, *this will skip the initialization
of the IOContext associated with this particular thread*. And, when {{MT_12}} starts executing,
it will try to initialize the {{MapOperator}}, but since the {{IOContext}} is not initialized,
this will fail miserably.
