[security-dev] lookupIdentityById requires preconfigured Tiers

Ok, I was going to add a getPartitions() method to IdentityStore, but 
this just won't scale.  Instead I changed 
DefaultIdentityManager.checkIfIdentityTypeExists() to take into account 
the identityType's partition id if it is set.  This fixes my grantRole() 

The question is on whether IdentityManager.lookupIdentityById() needs to 
be fixed.  If this method is supposed to be scoped to the partition, 
then its ok, otherwise it will need to be fixed.
