IMPALA-4009: qgen: add docs, utility for installing Oracle as ref database
This patch adds documentation and a small utility for users wishing to
run the random query generator against Oracle as a reference database.
In particular, the patch
- points users toward installing Oracle Database.
- provides directions on incorporating a Python Oracle client
(cx_Oracle) into our impala-python virtual environment.
- provides a small utility that will verify installation and
connectivity between client and server
This documentation isn't meant to be a complete guide. Other patches
will add documentation for actually loading random query generator test
data into Oracle, for example.
