> Impala truncates insert-only tables by writing a base directory containing an empty file
named "_empty". (Like Hive should, see HIVE-20137) Generally in Hive a file name beginning
with an underscore connotes a temporary file that isn't supposed to be read by operations
that didn't create it.
>  Before HIVE-23495, getAcidState listed each directory in the table (HdfsUtils#listLocatedStatus)
– and filtered out directories with names beginning with an underscore or period as they
are presumably temporary. This allowed files called "_empty" to be read, since hive checked
the directory name and not the file name.
>  After HIVE-23495, we recursively list each file in the table (AcidUtils#getHdfsDirSnapshots)
with a filter that doesn't accept files with names beginning with an underscore or period
as they are presumably temporary. As a result Hive reads the table data as if the truncate
operation had not happened.
> Since performance in getAcidState is important, probably the best solution is make an
exception in the filter and accept files with the name "_empty".
