Enable Lucene to take advantage of low-level IO options (direct IO) and generalize it’s Directory implementation

by Varun Thacker for Apache Software Foundation

My project aims to generalize the current Lucene Directory implementation by making it a UnixDirectory. This would be done by adding IOContext to the lower level API. These are two existing Lucene tasks ( LUCENE-2793 and LUCENE-2795).
