    [FLINK-3700] [core] Add 'Preconditions' utility class.

    The functionality that Flink uses from Guava is super simple and limited.
    We get a big dependency that has caused a lot of pain in the past, simply to get access
to some simple utility methods. This has cause us quite a bit of pain in the past, because
of Guava version conflicts and the necessary dependency shading.
    
    In order to reduce the dependency on Guava, this adds a simple Flink Preconditions class.
    
    While referencing well established libraries is a good idea for standalone apps, it is
a problem for frameworks like Flink, if the dependencies are not well-behaved with respect
to version compatibility. Guava is not well behaved in that sense.
