[SPARK-7490] [CORE] [Minor] MapOutputTracker.deserializeMapStatuses: …

…close input streams

GZIPInputStream allocates native memory that is not freed until close() or
when the finalizer runs. It is best to close() these streams explicitly.

stephenh made the same change for serializeMapStatuses in commit b0d884f. This is the same change for deserialize.

(I ran the unit test suite! it seems to have passed. I did not make a JIRA since this seems "trivial", and the guidelines suggest it is not required for trivial changes)
