[spark programming guide](http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/programming-guide.html#external-datasets) says:
Note that you cannot have fewer partitions than blocks.
But [Partitions and Partitioning](https://jaceklaskowski.gitbooks.io/mastering-apache-spark/content/spark-rdd-partitions.html) says:
Ideally, you would get the same number of blocks as you see in HDFS, but if the lines in your file are too long (longer than the block size), there will be fewer partitions.
which is in conflict.
