Review request for mesos, Alexander Rukletsov and Vinod Kone.

Bugs: MESOS-3335

Repository: mesos


While `FlagsBase` internally stores just maps of names and
flags, the functions stored in a `Flag` rely on the original type of
the `Flags` containing them (e.g., we perform dynamic casts to detect
their types).

Since `Option<T>` stores `T` as a value (i.e., it cannot contain
reference types) any interface taking an `Option<T>` cannot rely on
polymorphic behavior of `T`. To make use of polymorphism we should
instead store e.g., a pointer type to avoid slicing.

Here we change `Flags` arguments of `subprocess` to allow preserving
the original type so `Flag` function can work reliably.
