      Description

      Currently, there is no way to persist column comments for Kudu tables unless we store them in HMS. We should be able to store column comments in Kudu through the ColumnSchema class.
      Example of using column comments in a CREATE TABLE statement:

      impala>create table foo (a int primary key comment 'this is column a') distribute by hash (a) into 4 buckets stored as kudu;
