Notable bug fixes and enhancements

forceReset configuration for the managed cursor, so that the cursor could be reset to a given position and readers can read data from compacted ledgers.
Previously, the wrong transaction sequenceId was recovered due to incorrect
ManagedLedgerInterceptor to update current sequenceId to
managedLedger properties and more.
Previously, it was hard to test transaction performance (such as the delay and rate of sending and consuming messages) when opening a transaction.
PerformanceTransaction class to support this enhancement.

After the method
getPendingQueueSize() was called and the send receipt came back, the peek from the
pendingMessages might get NPE during the process.
Added a thread-safe message count object in
OpSendMsgQueue for each compute process.
Previously, if a class was dynamically loaded by
