Text class should provide method to return byte array of getLength()

Key: HADOOP-6868
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6868
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Bug
Components: util
Affects Versions: 0.20.2
Reporter: Ted Yu

People would use the following code to convert Text to String:
String valueString = new String(valueText.getBytes(), "UTF-8");

However, if Text is reused, the above call would return String of monotonically increasing length.
From 'Hadoop and XML' discussion thread:
The problem I am seeing is between the Map phase and the
Reduce phase, the XML is getting munged. For Example:

Text should provide method to return byte array of getLength() length.
