Review comment:
       Ohh.. I think I get it now.
   * You are right that this will do stuff which is not really needed in this 
case - namely creating objects which are not needed at here 
(dirSnapshot.metaDataFile/dirSnapshot.acidFormatFile), also we might list and 
create objects which are not needed in this snapshot. On the other hand the 
costly part on S3 (and on HDFS as well) is the number of remote calls, which is 
reduced to a single listing instead of doing the listing for every directory 
   * It is not possible that it does not scan some location which needed. If 
this happens then this is a bug in AcidUtils.getAcidState, as it has to return 
every directory which is readable
   What I do not understand in your comment is "this method would return a 
something (it could still be a map) which could fill in stuff from hdfs if its 
not cached already" - the main thing we would like to avoid here is the need of 
reading the HDFS again and again. The only way to realize that something is 
missing is reading the directory again... or I miss something :)

> Currently basic stats generation uses file listing for getting statistics, 
> and also uses a file listing for getting the acid state. We should optimize 
> this.
