RawLocalFileSystem.mkdirs does not throw IOException when it should?

                 Key: HADOOP-6501
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6501
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs
    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
         Environment: Fedora, Java 1.6.0_17, hadoop 20.1
            Reporter: robert Cook
            Priority: Minor

public boolean mkdirs(Path f) throws IOException {
    Path parent = f.getParent();
    File p2f = pathToFile(f);
    return (parent == null || mkdirs(parent)) &&
      (p2f.mkdir() || p2f.isDirectory());
none of the methods called throw IOException
         yet FileSystemContract BaseTest.testMkdirsFailsForSubdirectoryOfExistingFile fails
    Path testSubDir = path("/test/hadoop/file/subdir");
    try {
      fs.mkdirs(testSubDir);    //<---------returns false instead of throwing exception
      fail("Should throw IOException.");
    } catch (IOException e) {
      // expected
further UNIX mkdir operates on a path argument.   why does hadoop mkdir create directories
in the path one at a time???
NOTE that a permission or other failure leaves a garbage partially-completed path in the current
hadoop impl.
