Stop doing implicit role manipulation #524

Per #522, when invoking riak-admin security alter-user the code loses all existing roles if only a password is provided.

The option parsing code creates {"roles", []} as a tuple when riak-admin security alter-user <user> role= is invoked (which is the only way to remove all roles), but riak_core_security:validate_role_option/1 also added {"roles", []} as a tuple when no roles information was passed at all, hence the bug.

This patch instructs validate_role_option/1 to simply return the options without adding the unnecessary tuple. It also handles the one case in the code where (I believe) an absence of such a tuple might cause problems by adding a default value of [] to a roles lookup.
