      FileSystem listStatus method throws FileNotFoundException for all implementations. Application code should catch or propagate FileNotFoundException.

    Description

      As discussed in HDFS-538, it would be better for FileSystem and its implementations to throw FileNotFoundException when the file is not found, rather than returning null. This will bring it in line with getFileStatus and, I expect, default user expectations.
