Review request for ranger, Don Bosco Durai and Madhan Neethiraj.


Last step of this change: removing the kafka-security maven profile all together.  We have
given enough time to community to absorb an hollowed our profile.  As for the prior change,
once approved, I'd push this out to 0.5 branch, too.

Bugs: RANGER-777

Repository: ranger


Since kafka's support for authorizer was not on master, building kafka plugin required some
doing.  Kafka team has since released the authorization changes as part of the v0.9 jar that
was pushed into maven central.  As part of that a few of the auxiliary APIs, related to authentication,
that kafka plugin was relying on got changed. Accordingly, this patch:
- Changes kafka plugin code so it uses the APIs that are released as part of v0.9 kafka jar.
- Removes the need for special profile to build kafka plugin such that now it gets build by
default if a complete build is done for kafka

These changes would be ported also port to 0.5.

1. Kafka authorization for publish/consume works as before.
2. Authentication API changes were used by HDFS audit plugin.  Ensured that audit to HDFS
works before and after use of new API.  Test was done against kafka cluster.
