Hive Warehouse Connector Simplification

In this release, HWC read configuration and use has been simplified. You use a common configuration and specify the Spark Direct Reader or a JDBC mode you want to use. You can transparently read with HWC in different modes using just spark.sql("<query>"). For backward compatibility, the configurations required in earlier releases are still supported, but will be deprecated eventually. For details, see Reading Data through HWC.
