In order to support SPNEGO with Hadoop-2.7 and JDK8 we need to apply this patch.
SPNEGO auth does not work with CNAMEs in JDK8
Olaf Flebbe, do we need this in 1.2? Shall it be blocker then?
Without this patch hadoop secure mode does not work Patch is straight forward. Setting it to blocker.
Looks great. +1.
