Re: Map tasks allocation in reduce slots?
MR1 has the concept of "map and reduce slots" (i.e. different types of
slots) - but it does not run maps in reducer allocated slots - they
are exclusive for reducers of any job to run.

YARN, on which MR2 runs, has no notion of dedicated slots (for M or R types).
