Remove the "grant authority" mechanism from users

Authored by epriestley on Aug 30 2019, 4:15 PM.



Ref T13393. See some previous discussion in T13366.

Caching is hard and all approaches here have downsides, but the request cache likely has fewer practical downsides for this kind of policy check than other approaches. In particular, the grant approach (at least, as previously used in Phortune) has a major downside that "Query" classes can no longer fully enforce policies.

Since Phortune no longer depends on grants and they've now been removed from instances, drop the mechanism completely.

Test Plan

Grepped for callsites, found none.
