Please help review the code changes for CR 7142921 and CR 7144997. The 
webrev is uploaded to,

In the fix, I added two new file type detectors, one is 
MimeTypesFileTypeDetector, and the other is 
MagicFileTypeDetector.MimeTypesFileTypeDetector is using a file name 
extension to look up its MIME type by checking mime.types files, which 
can be used in Linux, Solaris, and Mac.MagicFileTypeDetector is using 
libmagic to detect a file type in Linux. The library, libmagic, is 
provided in the same package of file command, which is currently only 
available in Linux platform.
