NetUtils.connect should check that it hasn't connected a socket to itself

Key: HADOOP-6722
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6722
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Bug
Components: util
Reporter: Todd Lipcon
Assignee: Todd Lipcon

I had no idea this was possible, but it turns out that a TCP connection will be established in the rare case that the local side of the socket binds to the ephemeral port that you later try to connect to. This can present itself in very very rare occasion when an RPC client is trying to connect to a daemon running on the same node, but that daemon is down. To see what I'm talking about, run "while true ; do telnet localhost 60020 ; done" on a multicore box and wait several minutes.

This can be easily detected in NetUtils.connect by making sure the local address/port is not equal to the remote address/port.
