    [FLINK-4341] Let idle consumer subtasks emit max value watermarks and fail on resharding

    This is a short-term fix, until the min-watermark service for the JobManager described
in the JIRA discussion is available.
    The way this fix works is that we let idle subtasks that initially don't get assigned
shards emit a `Long.MAX_VALUE` watermark. Also, we _only fail hard if an idle subtask_ is
assigned new shards when resharding happens, to avoid messing up the watermarks. So, if all
subtasks are not initially idle on startup (i.e., when total number of shards > consumer
parallelism), the Kinesis consumer can still transparently handle resharding like before without
    I've tested exactly-once with our manual tests (with and w/o resharding) and the fix works
nicely, still retaining exactly-once guarantee despite non-transparency. However, I'm a bit
unsure on how to test if the unbounded state with window operators is also fixed with this
change, so we're still yet to clarify this.
    R: @rmetzger and @aljoscha for review. Thanks in advance!

    [FLINK-4341] Let idle consumer subtasks emit max value watermarks and fail on resharding
    This no longer allows the Kinesis consumer to transparently handle resharding.
    This is a short-term workaround until we have a min-watermark notification service available
in the JobManager.
