Metatool updateLocation warning on views

      Description

      If views are present in a hive database, issuing a 'hive metatool -updateLocation' command will result in an error like this:

      ...
      Warning: Found records with bad LOCATION in SDS table..
      bad location URI: null
      bad location URI: null
      bad location URI: null
      ....

      Based on the source code for Metatool, it looks like there would then be a "bad location URI: null" message for every view and it also appears this is happening simply because the 'sds' table in the hive schema has a column called location that is NULL only for views.
