    Metron-532 Define Profile Period When Calling PROFILE_GET

    This PR builds on top of @nickwallen 's work in METRON-529, which has already been committed
to master. It adds an optional argument to PROFILE_GET, allowing run-time overrides of the
profiler client global configuration parameters. The primary use case is when historical profiles
have been created with a different profile configuration than is currently configured, and
the analyst needing to access them does not want to change the global client configuration
so as not to disrupt the work of other analysts working with current profiles.
    This PR is essentially similar to the former proposed PR-345, except that the signature
of the PROFILE_GET function has been changed to make `groups` be a List instead of a "varargs"-style
sequence, so the new `config_overrides` Map argument can come after it.  This avoids a really
hacky over-indulgence in polymorphism, and is consistent with discussion in PR-395.  I'm opening
a new PR, rather than reopening the old one, because I also had to rebase to changes in master,
and the forced push destroyed the history that PR-345 pointed at.
    At suggestion of @cestella , scope of this work item was expanded to include checking
for config changes at run time, in the PROFILE_GET Stellar function.  This is a much needed
    I also considerably improved the documentation of PROFILE_GET as regards the `groups`
argument, with input from @nickwallen .  Thanks, Nick!
    Testing: This build has passed Travis in my fork, and should shortly be reported passed
here.  Since the only code changes were to the Stellar function, the corresponding junit tests
are actually sufficient testing.  However, I will go ahead and test them on a live single-host
test platform, taking the opportunity to test the new Profiler RPMs from PR-413!  I'll report
the results here tomorrow.

    METRON-532 continued. Changed PROFILE_GET signature to make 'groups' argument a list;
deprecate but still allow the former varargs-style usage. Improved documentation with input
from Nick.

    Update metron-platform/metron-common/ to match new Stellar doc standard, and
tweak the description a little more.
