Change subject: IMPALA-2700: ASCII NUL characters are doubled on insert into text tables

Patch Set 5: Code-Review+2

Commit Message:

PS5, Line 9: Currently the scanner processes the '\0' character as a no special character
           : whereas the writer treats it as a special character. The writer
           : appends a special character before writting which is causing the ASCII
           : NULL characters to double since they are the default escape characters.
           : This adds a check to treat '\0' as a no special character in the
           : writter.
This is confusing.  Is the following accurate?

The when the escape char is set to '\0', the scanner threads this as no escape.  However,
the text writer currently treats '\0' as a valid escape character, and escape it when writing,
causing a doubling of ASCII NUL characters.

The fix is to make the text writer treat escape char of '\0' as no escape.
