    [FLINK-8649] [scala api] Pass on TypeInfo in 

    ## What is the purpose of the change
    In the Scala API, modify `StreamExecutionEnvironment.createInput` to pass 
through the implicitly got TypeInfo to the java `createInput` call. With the 
old code, the Java API tries to figure out the TypeInfo on its own, which 
doesn't always work as well as the TypeInfo creation of the Scala API.
    Note that if the input format implements `ResultTypeQueryable`, then we 
would like to retain the old behaviour, so we just do the call into the Java 
API in the old way in this case. (`ResultTypeQueryable` can sometimes give a 
better type than the Scala TypeInfo creation, e.g. when the result type depends 
on parametrization of the input format.)
    ## Verifying this change
    This change is a trivial rework / code cleanup without any test coverage.
    ## Does this pull request potentially affect one of the following parts:
      - Dependencies (does it add or upgrade a dependency): no
      - The public API, i.e., is any changed class annotated with 
`@Public(Evolving)`: no
      - The serializers: no
      - The runtime per-record code paths (performance sensitive): no
      - Anything that affects deployment or recovery: JobManager (and its 
components), Checkpointing, Yarn/Mesos, ZooKeeper: no
      - The S3 file system connector: no
    ## Documentation
      - Does this pull request introduce a new feature? no

>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Scala API
>    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
>            Reporter: Gabor Gevay
>            Assignee: Gabor Gevay
>            Priority: Trivial
>             Fix For: 1.5.0
> This is {{StreamExecutionEnvironment.createInput}} in the Scala API:
> {code}
> def createInput[T: TypeInformation](inputFormat: InputFormat[T, _]): 
> DataStream[T] =
>   asScalaStream(javaEnv.createInput(inputFormat))
> {code}
> It should pass on the implicitly got {{TypeInformation}} to Java like this:
> {code}
> def createInput[T: TypeInformation](inputFormat: InputFormat[T, _]): 
> DataStream[T] =
>   asScalaStream(javaEnv.createInput(inputFormat, 
> implicitly[TypeInformation[T]]))
> {code}
> The current situation creates a problem, for example, when we have generics 
> in the type like in the following code, where the Java API can't deduce the 
> {{TypeInformation}} on its own:
> {code}
> StreamExecutionEnvironment.getExecutionEnvironment.createInput[Tuple2[Integer,
>  Integer]](new ParallelIteratorInputFormat[Tuple2[Integer, Integer]](null))
> {code}
