Subject spark git commit: Log warnings for numIterations * miniBatchFraction < 1.0

Log warnings for numIterations * miniBatchFraction < 1.0

## What changes were proposed in this pull request?

Add a warning log for the case that `numIterations * miniBatchFraction <1.0` during gradient
descent. If the product of those two numbers is less than `1.0`, then not all training examples
will be used during optimization. To put this concretely, suppose that `numExamples = 100`,
`miniBatchFraction = 0.2` and `numIterations = 3`. Then, 3 iterations will occur each sampling
approximately 6 examples each. In the best case, each of the 6 examples are unique; hence
18/100 examples are used.

This may be counter-intuitive to most users and led to the issue during the development of
another Spark  ML model: https://github.com/zhengruifeng/spark-libFM/issues/11. If a user
actually does not require the training data set, it would be easier and more intuitive to
use `RDD.sample`.

## How was this patch tested?

`build/mvn -DskipTests clean package` build succeeds
