Enable override of -u flag to docker in LSF

The docker LSF integration would be more useful if the user inside the container was not forced to be LSB_SUB_USER. It's not clear where this -u flag is being added to the docker command by LSF. The construction of this flag does not appear to be happening in the provided python scripts. This should be admin-configurable only, so that security precautions can be taken before, for example, allowing the user to be root in the container (likely the most common way to use docker containers), or to prevent the user from running as another client.

    The general requirement is that users do not gain any privileges and that all jobs run as the user who submitted them. This is consistent across docker, singularity, shifter etc.
    The key point of the integration is that users are not part of the docker user group, and do not gain privileges and cannot impersonate another user.

    If the container is assuming that the user has privileges to do impersonation, especially root, then the submitting user also needs to be in the docker user group, and the container should just be executed directly not using the integration.
