  Log Message:
  [#1663] Add authorization and validation to activity_create() logic action function

activity_create() logic action function now checks authorization and
does validation. Has an ignore_auth argument (default: False) which if
True will skip the authorization.

Other logic functions that call activity_create() as a side-effect (and
after doing their own authorization, if any) pass ignore_auth=True to

Also made those other logic functions explicitly construct an
activity_create_context dict instead of just passing in their own
context dicts. This way unwanted stuff such as the calling function's
schema does not get passed into activity_create(), and the logic
functions also put 'defer_commit' into activity_create_context because
they want to do their own commit later.

The user_create() logic action function now flushes the session before
calling activity_create() so that the new user's id is initialised. This
bug wasn't showing itself before when activity_create() didn't do any

Added activity_create() logic auth function, just authorizes only
sysadmins to create activities.

Add default_create_activity_schema() to validate activity dicts, and add
user_id_exists(), group_id_exists(), activity_type_exists() and
object_id_validator() validator functions.
