      Description

      The documentation for spark.task.maxFailures isn't clear as to whether this is just the number of total task failures or if its a single task failing multiple attempts.

      It turns out its the latter, a single task has to fail spark.task.maxFailures number of attempts before it fails the job.

      We should try to make that more clear in docs.
