    Normalize the username entered at login to lowercase
    This is a cherry pick from 88a312c28a
    The cherry pick was not clean and had to be finished manually due to layout change of affected files.
    LDAP does a case sensitive match of the user name but AD will
    do a case insensitive match. By normalizing the userid to
    lowercase when using external auth both backed to either
    an LDAP directory or AD both will authenticate but only one DB
    record, in all lowercase, will be created, even if the user
    attempted to login with a mixed case username when backed to AD.
