> Noticed this while attempting to use the AvroSchemaRegsitry with some complex schema.
Boiled down, Avro lets you define a schema such as;
> {code}
> { 
>   "namespace": "org.apache.nifi.testing", 
>   "name": "CompositRecord", 
>   "type": "record", 
>   "fields": [ 
>     { 
>       "name": "id", 
>       "type": "int" 
>     }, 
>     { 
>       "name": "value", 
>       "type": "string" 
>     }, 
>     { 
>       "name": "parent", 
>       "type": [
>         "null",
>         "CompositRecord"
>       ]
>     } 
>   ] 
> }
> {code}
> The AvroSchemaRegistry (AvroTypeUtil specifically) will fail to parse, and generate a
stackoverflow exception.
> I've whipped up a fix, tested it out in 1.4.0, and am just running through the contrib
build before I submit a patch.
