Natvie sequence problems uncovered after OPENJPA-1376

                 Key: OPENJPA-2069
             Project: OpenJPA
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jdbc, kernel
    Affects Versions: 2.1.2, 2.2.0
            Reporter: Albert Lee

After OPENJPA-1376 commits, it uncovered a few issues, some old and some new.

1. Backward compatibility - Previous, openjpa relies on the native sequence to provide the
next value based on the sequence's INCREMENT BY setting. Now that openjpa manages the next
sequence value and allocation size, if the db sequence is manually created that does not match
the application's increment and allocation size, committing a new entity may result a constraint
violation exception when new sequence value is requested that crossed the allocation boundary.
 This behavior is indirectly documented in the migration consideration section in the user
manual, but it would be better if this can be handled automatically or at least to provide
a compatibility option to honor previous behavior.

2. Initial value always start with the same value (default to 1) - In NativeJDBCSeq, the _initial,
_increment and _allocate are used for the CREATE SEQUENCE generation for SynchronizeMapping
function. For existing db sequence, next returns whatever managed by the db sequence. After
the commit, next will first return the_nextValue value in NativeJDBCSeq until _maxValue is
reached, then it go to db to get the sequence's next value, which may be ways off from the
current _maxValue.

3. _nextValue not handled proper when crossing _allocate boundary - When NativeJDBCSeq's _nextValue
exceeds the _maxValue boundary, it queries db's sequence for the next incremental value and
assign directly as the next return value. It works for incrementBy = 1 but for some value
(e.g. 3), the difference of the before and after cross boundary values may NOT be the _increment
