Extend SecurityManagerSetup to add extra privileges to the set of default privileges (merge
two policy files)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-5631
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5631
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Test
    Affects Versions: 10.9.0.0
            Reporter: Kristian Waagan
            Assignee: Kristian Waagan


When moving ProtocolTest into suites all (see DERBY-2031), I needed to allow the test code
to create a socket. There was already a policy file for the old harness for doing this, but
when using this with the JUnit framework I ended up adding privilege after privilege to get
the framework itself running.
Instead of creating a large policy file duplicating all the privileges that the framework
requires to function properly, I think it would be better to make the SecurityManagerSetup
capable of merging the test specific policy file with the default policy file.
This mode of operation can be used when you need a few extra privileges to execute the test,
but there are probably also tests where you want full control of the privileges - in which
case you use the existing mode of operation.

I'm not 100% sure this approach will always work, but basic testing has shown promising results.
