Incorrect javadoc in WritableUtils.java

      Description

      Documentation for writeVLong in WritableUtils states that "For
      -112 <= i <= 127, only one byte is used"

      Documentation for writeVInt states that "For -120 <= i <= 127, only one byte is used"

      writeVInt calls internally writeVLong, so the ranges are the same for both functions.
      After examining the code, I see that the documentation that is at writeVLong is correct.
      Documentation for writeVInt is therefore incorrect and should be fixed.
