Use Project's x.509 in WebHDFS for application requests

Description

Instead of using the application specific certificates from the Datanodes to open a DFS client, use the user project certificates instead which are already materialized be the Datanode.

One downside with this approach is that we loose the application ID which is vital for Provenance. So, no provenance for applications using WebHDFS.

There is a plan to materialize the application's certificates but at a later stage.
