https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9258 - the tests and the
patches for S3 and S3N.
Data loss is only going to happen if you go rename(srcDir, srcDir) or
rename(srcDir,srcDir/child); nobody has ever reported it. We have to decide
whether this is critical enough to get in, or postpone to 1.3. Given this
is a last minute change and the changes to the S3FileSystem's rename()
operation are significant, delaying to 1.3 may actually be safer.
