EffectiveCallerId in Vtgate gRPC calls

A new flag grpc-use-static-authentication-callerid is added to gate the behavior introduced in
Earlier, we used to automatically set immediateCallerID to user from static authentication context that overrode the EffectiveCallerId.

Shard name validation in TopoServer

Prior to v16.0.2, it was possible to create a shard name with invalid characters, which would then be inaccessible to various cluster management operations.

Shard names may no longer contain the forward slash ("/") character, and TopoServer's CreateShard method returns an error if given such a name.

The entire changelog for this release can be found here.

The release includes 24 commits (excluding merges)
