Subject [Impala-CR](cdh5-trunk) IMPALA-3459: Add test for DROP TABLE PURGE for S3

IMPALA-3459: Add test for DROP TABLE PURGE for S3

It was previously thought that PURGE had no effect on S3. However,
the Hive Metastore actually created a .Trash directory and copied the
files there when a DROP TABLE was conducted from Impala.

This patch just enables the existing PURGE tests for S3. There were a
few reasons this wasn't working before. The paths given to the S3
client (boto3) should not have a leading "/". This has been fixed as
it doesn't make a difference for HDFS if that exists or not.

Also, PURGE is a pure delete whereas a regular DROP is a copy. A copy
is consistent whereas a delete is only eventually consistent, so when
we PURGE a table or partition, the files will still be visible for
sometime after the query has completed. The tests have been modified
to accomodate for this case as well.
