-1 checkstyle 2m 31s The applied patch generated 75 new checkstyle issues (total was 1679, now 1681).
As patch is modifying test cases, checkstyle is not applicable here
-1 hdfs tests 163m 55s Tests failed in hadoop-hdfs.
These test case failures are not because of this patch.
hadoop.tools.TestHdfsConfigFields is failing because properties "dfs.htrace.spanreceiver.classes" and "dfs.client.htrace.spanreceiver.classes" are not added in org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.DFSConfigKeys.
hadoop.tracing.TestTraceAdmin is failing because of recent changed in TraceAdmin file.
similarly hadoop.hdfs.TestDatanodeDeath has other reason for failure.
I think it would be more appropriate to commit this patch and let the test case failures be handled as part of other jira or the jira which caused these failures.
