Decouple SAML authentication from the default Omniauth logic

Patricio Cano requested to merge saml-decoupling into master

Fixes gitlab-org/gitlab-ee#178

With this merge request SAML gets its own login logic and it's own User class under lib/gitlab/saml/ This is needed to give SAML more versatility over how the authorization process works and to pave the way for the development of a SAML group sync as outlined here: gitlab-org/gitlab-ee#118

@marin as part of this MR a new setting was added to gitlab.yml that also needs to be added to omnibus. Please let me know how that process works.
