      Description

      When trying to copy file using distcp on H23, if -m 0 is specified, distcp will just spawn 0 mapper tasks and the file will not be copied.
      But this used to work before H23, even when -m 0 specified, distcp will always copy the files.
      Checked the code of DistCp.java
      Before the rewrite, it set the number maps at least to 1
      job.setNumMapTasks(Math.max(numMaps, 1));

      But in the newest code, it just takes the input from user:
      job.getConfiguration().set(JobContext.NUM_MAPS,
      String.valueOf(inputOptions.getMaxMaps()));
