We need to introduce something like AccessControllerProtocol.checkPermissions(Permission[] permissions) API, so that clients can check access rights before carrying out the operations. We need this kind of operation for HCATALOG-245, which introduces authorization providers for hbase over hcat. We cannot use getUserPermissions() since it requires ADMIN permissions on the global/table level.
