Given a non-empty array of integers, return the third maximum number in this array. If it does not exist, return the maximum number. The time complexity must be in O(n).
Input: [3, 2, 1] Output: 1 Explanation: The third maximum is 1.
Input: [1, 2] Output: 2 Explanation: The third maximum does not exist, so the maximum (2) is returned instead.
Input: [2, 2, 3, 1] Output: 1 Explanation: Note that the third maximum here means the third maximum distinct number. Both numbers with value 2 are both considered as second maximum.
