Re: FileSystem.getFileChecksum() returns null on LocalFileSystem
It's not implemented for local file system (RawLocalFileSystem), see the
javadoc from FileSystem:

   * @return The file checksum.  The default return value is null,
   *  which indicates that no checksum algorithm is implemented
   *  in the corresponding FileSystem.

Given that LocalFileSystem extends ChecksumFileSystem it would be
reasonable for it to implement it. Feel free to file a jira for that if you
need it.

Thanks,
Eli
