NameNode should validate all coming file path

Key: HDFS-3063
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3063
Project: Hadoop HDFS
Issue Type: Improvement
Components: name-node
Affects Versions:
Reporter: Denny Ye
Priority: Minor

NameNode provides RPC service for not only DFS client but also user defined program. A common case we always met is that user transfers file path prefixed with HDFS protocol("hdfs://{namenode:{port}}/{folder}/{file}"). NameNode cannot map node meta-data with this path and always throw NPE. In user client, we only see the NullPointerException, no other tips for which step it occurs.
Also, NameNode should validate all coming file path with regular format.

One exception I met:
Exception in thread "main" org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RemoteException: java.io.IOException: java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.INode.getPathComponents(INode.java:334)
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.INode.getPathComponents(INode.java:329)
