Matt Zhang commented on APEXMALHAR-2263:

Per our discussion today, we've agreed to change the offset to long. The 
suggestion is:
- the probability of customer extension using the protected offset field is 
very low.
- if they do, they’ll get compilation error, and as long as we doc it, it's an 
easy fix.
- in addition, we will mark AbstractFileInputOperator as @Evolving

> Offsets in AbstractFileInputOperator should be long rather than int

> Offsets in AbstractFileInputOperator use the int type which means files with 
> more that (2**31 -1) records will cause overflows and mysterious failures.
> Should be changed to use long.
