    [FLINK-2940] [JavaAPI] Remove Chill dependency from flink-java.

    This PR replaces `flink-java`'s `chill` dependency by `chill-java` to decouple `flink-java`
from Scala.
    Chill is used within the `KryoSerializer` to obtain a "Scala-preconfigured" Kryo instance.
Hence, Chill is still required for Scala DataSet or DataStream programs. Separate KryoSerializers
for Scala and Java are hard to provide, because `GenericTypeInformation` can be generated
through the `TypeExtractor`, `TypeParser`, and the Scala compiler marko. 
    
    In this PR, the `KryoSerializer` tries to dynamically load Chill's `ScalaKryoInstantiator`
and generate a Kryo instance through reflection to circumvent the Chill dependency. As a fallback,
a regular Kryo instance is created. Consequently, Chill's Kryo instance is used whenever Chill
is present in the classpath. To ensure that client, JM, and TM have Chill in their classpath,
we add Chill as a dependency to `flink-client`.
    
    **Note**: Before merging, we need to check if this works for Java and Scala programs which
are submitted to a cluster (including some collection data sources which are serialized at
the client).
