--------------------------------------

Hi Vinod, this one looks pretty close based on Chris' last review. Think we can 
get it in soon?

> Open up already widely-used APIs for delegation-token fetching & renewal to 
> ecosystem projects

> Storm would like to be able to fetch delegation tokens and forward them on to 
> running topologies so that they can access HDFS (STORM-346).  But to do so we 
> need to open up access to some of APIs. 
> Most notably FileSystem.addDelegationTokens(), Token.renew, 
> Credentials.getAllTokens, and UserGroupInformation but there may be others.
> At a minimum adding in storm to the list of allowed API users. But ideally 
> making them public. Restricting access to such important functionality to 
> just MR really makes secure HDFS inaccessible to anything except MR, or tools 
> that reuse MR input formats.
