      Description

      https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-129 introduced a bug in the load balancing logic of the Producer using broker.list.
      Since the broker.list doesn't specify the number of partitions in total, it should ideally pick a broker randomly, and then send the produce request with partition id -1, so that the EventHandler routes the request to a random partition.
      Instead of that, it defaults to 1 partition on each broker and ends up using the Partitioner to pick a partitions amongst the available ones.
