    SPARK-14091 [core] Consider improving performance of SparkContext.get…

    ## What changes were proposed in this pull request?
    Currently SparkContext.getCallSite() makes a call to Utils.getCallSite().
     private[spark] def getCallSite(): CallSite = {
        val callSite = Utils.getCallSite()
    However, in some places utils.withDummyCallSite(sc) is invoked to avoid expensive threaddumps
within getCallSite(). But Utils.getCallSite() is evaluated earlier causing threaddumps to
be computed. This would impact when lots of RDDs are created (e.g spends close to 3-7 seconds
when 1000+ are RDDs are present, which can have significant impact when entire query runtime
is in the order of 10-20 seconds)
    Creating this jira to consider evaluating getCallSite only when needed.
    ## How was this patch tested?
    No new test cases are added. Following standalone test was tried out manually. Also, built
entire spark binary and tried with few SQL queries in TPC-DS  and TPC-H in multi node cluster
    def run(): Unit = {
        val conf = new SparkConf()
        val sc = new SparkContext("local[1]", "test-context", conf)
        val start: Long = System.currentTimeMillis();
        val confBroadcast = sc.broadcast(new SerializableConfiguration(new Configuration()))
        Utils.withDummyCallSite(sc) {
          //Large tables end up creating 5500 RDDs
          for(i <- 1 to 5000) {
            val testRDD = new HadoopRDD(sc, confBroadcast, None, null,
              classOf[NullWritable], classOf[Writable], 10)
        val end: Long = System.currentTimeMillis();
        println("Time taken : " + (end - start))
    def main(args: Array[String]): Unit = {
    (Please explain how this patch was tested. E.g. unit tests, integration tests, manual
    (If this patch involves UI changes, please attach a screenshot; otherwise, remove this)
