Subject [Impala-ASF-CR] IMPALA-5582: Store sentry privileges in lower case

Change subject: IMPALA-5582: Store sentry privileges in lower case

IMPALA-5582: Store sentry privileges in lower case

Privileges granted to a db/table whose name contains upper case
characters can disappear after a few seconds. A privilege
is inserted into the catalogObjectCache using a key that
uses the db/table name. The key gets converted to lower case
before inserting. The db/table name is stored in upper case in
the rolePrivilege object.
The sentryProxy thread on the other hand returns the db/table name
in lower case. If the catalogObjectCache on a update adds the new
rolePrivilege object first and removes the old object later, it
ends up deleting the newer verison of the rolePrivilege since they
both use the same key to add/remove from the cache.
This change sets the privilege name in lower case which does not
trigger these chain of events on a sentryProxy thread update.

This change also adds a new catalogd startup option
to configure the frequency at which catalogd polls the sentry service
to update any policy changes. The default value is 60 seconds.

Added a test which adds select privileges to 3 tables  specified in
lower case, upper case and mixed case. The test verifies that the
privileges on the 3 tables do not disappear on a sentry update.
