    [FLINK-6489] [FLINK-8696] [shell scripts] Remove JobManager local mode from 
the Shell Scripts

    ## What is the purpose of the change
    
    The JobManager local mode is problematic:
      - The JobManager does not start all components properly, making some 
operations fail/timeout unexpectedly
      - It introduces code complexity in maintaining the JobManager entry point 
that also spawns an embedded TaskManager
    
    The JobManager local mode is also unnecessary. The `start-cluster.sh` 
script sets up a proper local cluster without additional configuration.
    
    This pull request removes the local mode from all UNIX scripts and changes 
the Windows `start-local.bat` to a  `start-cluster.bat` that also starts two 
separate processes for JobManager and TaskManager.
    
    ## Brief change log
    
      - Changes the `start-local.bat` to a  `start-cluster.bat` which spawns 
two processes (using `start` command). The two processes show up as separate 
windows and can be stopped separately.
      - Removes the `start-local-sh` and `stop-local.sh` scripts.
      - Removes the passing of the *local* parameter between the shell scripts 
and always passes *cluster* as the execution mode parameter to the JobManager.
    
    The next step would be to remove the execution mode from the JobManagers 
command line argument parsing and setup logic.
    
    ## Verifying this change
    
      - Building Flink, starting a cluster via the shell scripts (Linux, MacOS, 
Windows) and checking the WebUI that the cluster is properly up. No actual job 
execution needed.
    
    ## Does this pull request potentially affect one of the following parts:
    
      - Dependencies (does it add or upgrade a dependency): (yes / **no)**
      - The public API, i.e., is any changed class annotated with 
`@Public(Evolving)`: (yes / **no)**
      - The serializers: (yes / **no** / don't know)
      - The runtime per-record code paths (performance sensitive): (yes / 
**no** / don't know)
      - Anything that affects deployment or recovery: JobManager (and its 
components), Checkpointing, Yarn/Mesos, ZooKeeper: (yes / **no** / don't know)
      - The S3 file system connector: (yes / **no** / don't know)
    
    ## Documentation
    
      - Does this pull request introduce a new feature? (yes / **no)**
      - If yes, how is the feature documented? (not applicable / **docs** / 
JavaDocs / not documented)
    
    Docs are updated to not refer to `start-local.xy` any more.
