    I think this is a very hack way to solve this problem. As we can not tell how the the
data source to be split, even for Hadoop, the split size just a hint, use that for computing
the partition number probably too risky for a generic data process framework.
    And the `RDD.coalesce` actually will combine the splits in a arbitrary way, it's probably
causes the data skew, as we most likely combine the large partitions into a a single task.
    IMO, I'd like to deep investigate how Hive to combine the small partitions, by using the
`CombineHiveInputFormat` or `HiveInputFormat`, which seems has a strategy to select the partitions
according to both input format, and also keep the balance.
