    [FLINK-7388][DataStream API] ProcessFunction.onTimer() sets processing time as timestamp

    ## What is the purpose of the change
    Before Flink 1.4.0, when called from a processing-time timer, the `ProcessFunction.onTimer()`
method sets the current processing time as event-time timestamp. This behavior is very subtle
and might not be noticed by users.
    Well, it's harmful because processing-time timestamps are indeterministic and not aligned
with watermarks. Besides, user-implemented logic depends on this wrong timestamp highly likely
is unintendedly faulty.
    So we've decided to fix it. Upon upgrading to 1.4.0, Flink jobs that are using this incorrect
event-time timestamp will fail, and users should adapt their jobs to the correct logic.
    ## Brief change log
    - not set a timestamp for processing-time timer
