Expand SecurityRealm to support case insensitivity better

      Some {{SecurityRealm}}s are case insensitive, notably Active Director, but the current core abstraction assumes that user names and group names are totally case sensitive.

      In JENKINS-12607, I attempted a fix to canonicalize the names to lower case, but this resulted in massive regression because various parts of Jenkins (such as AuthorizationStrategy stores information keyed by the user name, and changing the user name breaks them.

      We need to expand abstractions in the core (perhaps by even patching Acegi?) so that authorization code would naturally steer toward doing proper comparison.
