    [FLINK-2664] [streaming] Allow partitioned state removal

    This PR changes the way Partitioned states handle null values.
    Before this PR the user was not allowed to put null values in a partitioned state and
an exception was thrown. This did not allow the user to remove the state for the current key
(so the default value will be retreived next time).
    Now whenever a user updates a partitioned state with a null value, the system will remove
the state for the respective key from that map containing all the <key,state> pairs
allowing for the garbage collection of unwanted user state.
    The StatefulOperatorTest has also been modified to test for the changed behavior.

> Currently there is no way to remove a specific key from the partitioned state stored
at streaming operators, which can cause unnecessary state accumulation.
> I suggest to remove the partitioned state for the current input when the state is set
to null, and upon next retrieval simply return the default value. This allows the implementation
of streaming programs that can garbage collect their own unwanted state.
