Liberty zOS - add capability to selectivity use mapDistributedIdentities via TAI

Provide way to let Liberty on zOS be configured so that can selectivity specify that some validated users are mapped to RACF but others use other security set up in Liberty such as an external LDAP

Further detail:

Provide a way to set up the Liberty with a Trust Association Interceptor which will allow a single Liberty server to support both scenarios of mapDistributedIdentities=true and mapDistributedIdentities=false.
1 - TAI returns value that Liberty treats as RACF uid, and does NOT try to do mapping (mapDistributedIdentities="false"). Authentication against SAF occurs with the uid.
and
2 - TAI takes no action, and Liberty does map the distributed id to a RACF id (mapDistributedIdentities="true" ).
So support would require mapDistributedIdentities to be both true in some scenarios and false in other scenarios.

multiple mode of ID in JWT "sub" claim

We need to have multiple modes of Authentication for the same API. Currently zCEE only allows either distributed Identity (and RACMAP) with API Connect or userID directly, in JWT claim. We need the API to be used by one and other in the same server.
