      Description

      Newer versions of metastore schema are compatible with older versions of hive, as only new tables or columns are added with additional information.

      HIVE-11613 added a check in hive schematool -info command to see if schema version is equal.

      However, the state where db schema version is ahead of hive software version is often seen when a 'rolling upgrade' or 'rolling downgrade' is happening. This is a state where hive is functional and returning non zero status for it is misleading.
