      Description

      In current implementation

      • BlocksMap references BlockInfo
      • INode references Block
      • BlockInfo contains a reference to the corresponding Block

      It would be better to incorporate Block into BlockInfo and reference the latter everywhere in name-node structures.
      This saves 24 bytes per block on a 64-bit jvm as stated in HADOOP-1687 (5).
      I retained the Block class as a structure for external (client and data-node) communication.
