Thanks [~sershe] I'll take a look into those classes.

[~spena] can you take a look at this patch?

> When running on blobstores (like S3) where metadata operations (like listStatus) are
costly, Utilities.getInputPaths() can add significant overhead when setting up the input paths
for an MR / Spark / Tez job.
> The method performs a listStatus on all input paths in order to check if the path is
empty. If the path is empty, a dummy file is created for the given partition. This is all
done sequentially. This can be really slow when there are a lot of empty partitions. Even
when all partitions have input data, this can take a long time.
> We should either:
> (1) Just remove the logic to check if each input path is empty, and handle any edge cases
accordingly.
> (2) Multi-thread the listStatus calls
