Review request for mesos, Joris Van Remoortere and Michael Park.


Address some more code review comments.

Bugs: MESOS-4687

Repository: mesos


Scalar resource values are represented using floating point. As a result, users
could see unexpected results when accepting offers and making reservations for
fractional resources: values like "0.1" cannot be precisely represented using
standard floating point, and the resource values returned to frameworks might
contain an unpredictable amount of roundoff error.

This commit adjusts the master to use fixed-point when doing internal
computations on scalar resource values. The fixed-point format only supports
three decimal digits of precision: that is, fractional resource values like
"0.001" will be supported, but "0.0001" will not be.

make check

Manually verified that some of the floating point oddities in 
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MESOS-4071 do not occur when this patch 
is applied, although I wasn't able to reproduce the crash described in that 


* We don't currently emit a warning when discarding additional digits of 
precision from input scalar resource values. Should we? That would require 
identifying all the points where a resource value is seemed to be 
"user-provided", and also runs the risk of generating a ton of log messages 
when an old framework is used.
* Similarly, if the user gives us a resource value and we don't do anything to 
it, we won't discard any additional precision that appears in the value -- the 
precision only gets discarded when we apply an operator like `+` or `-`. 
Unclear if we should trim additional precision from all scalar resource values 
more aggressively.
