    [SPARK-1104] kill Process in workerThread

    As reported in
    By @pwendell: "Sometimes due to large shuffles executors will take a long time shutting
down. In particular this can happen if large numbers of shuffle files are around (this will
be alleviated by SPARK-1103, but nonetheless...).
    The symptom is you have DEAD workers sitting around in the UI and the existing workers
keep trying to re-register but can't because they've been assumed dead."
    In this patch, I add lines in the handler of InterruptedException in workerThread of executorRunner,
so that the process.destroy() and process.waitFor() can only block the workerThread instead
of blocking the worker Actor...
