Date Mon, 31 Jul 2017 13:54:00 GMT

Had to change the API for the startup check a bit and had to update the corresponding test
for backporting...

> Starting with Cassandra 3.0, we include support for converting pre CASSANDRA-7653 user
tables, until they will be dropped by the operator. Converting e.g. permissions happens by
simply copying all of them from {{permissions}} -> {{role_permissions}}, until the {{permissions}}
table has been dropped.
> Upgrading to 4.0 will only be possible from 3.0 upwards, so I think it's safe to assume
that the new permissions table has already been populated, whether the old table was dropped
or not. Therefor I'd suggest to just get rid of the legacy support.
