HBASE-5358. HBaseObjectWritable should be able to serialize generic arrays not defined previously

Review Request #3811 - Created Feb. 8, 2012 and updated

HBaseObjectWritable can encode Writable[]'s but, but cannot encode A[] where A extends Writable. This becomes an issue for example when adding a coprocessor method which takes A[] (see HBASE-5352).
