Bugs: MESOS-6839

Repository: mesos


Currently, when the containerizer launches a process with the POSIX
launcher, it will check if the `$PATH` environment variable (or `%PATH%`
in the case of Windows is set in the `LaunchInfo`. If it is not, we
supply a default path. Unfortunately, this default path is specific to
POSIX. In many of our tests, this causes many of our tests to be unable
to find Windows-standard executables like `ping`, and subsequently fail.

This commit will introduce a function, `default_path` that returns a
sensible default path for both POSIX and Windows. Since the Windows
implementation of this depends on the configuration of the host running
the containerizer (rather than, say, the one creating the `TaskInfo`),
we choose to implement this in `launch.cpp` instead of Stout, where a
user could mistakenly call it and expect the same output on all hosts.
