[Perf] The filterContents() method is suboptimal

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1478
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.5.5
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
             Fix For: 2.0.0-RC1

The way we process the entries to keep only the requested attributes in the filterContents()
method is suboptimal. The code does something like :

for each attributeType in the entry 
    for each requested attribute do

We should use the fact that the requested attributes is a set to check if the entry attributeType
is present in this set instead of looping over all of them. We can also decide to do the opposite
if the number of requested attribute is far below the entry attributes.

Not that it could save a lot of process time currently, but it represents 3.5% of the overall
CPU, a portion that will increase greatly as soon as we get rid of the costly and useless
clone and other superfluous operations we do, so I want to keep a track of this inefficiency
for a later improvement.
