      Description

      TEST SETUP
      Using attached sample hdfs java program that illustrates the issue.
      Using cluster with Kerberos enabled on cluster

      1. Compile instructions
        $ javac Symlink.java -cp `hadoop classpath`
        $ jar -cfe Symlink.jar Symlink Symlink.class
      1. create test file for symlink to use
        1. hadoop fs -touchz /user/username/filetest
      1. Create symlink using file context
        2. hadoop jar Symlink.jar ln /user/username/filetest /user/username/testsymlink
      1. Verify owner of test file
        3. hadoop jar Symlink.jar ls /user/username/
        rw-rr- username hdfs /user/jeagles/filetest
        -rwxrwxrwx username@XX.XXXX.XXXXX.XXX hdfs /user/username/testsymlink

      RESULTS
      1. Owner shows 'username@XX.XXXX.XXXXX.XXX' for symlink, expecting 'username'.
      2. Symlink is corrupted and can't removed, since it was created with an invalid user

      ------------------------
      Sample program to create Symlink

      FileContext fc = FileContext.getFileContext(getConf());
      fc.createSymlink(target, symlink, false);
