      Description

      The description of dfs.permissions.enabled in hdfs-default.xml does not state that permissions are always checked on certain calls regardless of this configuration. The HDFS permissions guide still mentions the deprecated dfs.permissions property instead of the currently supported dfs.permissions.enabled.
