--------------------------------------------

Ok, I'd better rebase this change.

> Consider a table partitioned by 2 keys (dt, region). Say a dt partition could have 10000
associated regions. Consider that the user does:
> {code:sql}
> ALTER TABLE my_table DROP PARTITION (dt='20150101');
> {code}
> As things stand now, {{StorageBasedAuthProvider}} will make individual {{DistributedFileSystem.listStatus()}}
calls for each partition-directory, and authorize each one separately. It'd be faster to batch
the calls, and examine multiple FileStatus objects at once.
