Capture context in its own key for JSON-based formatters

The JSON formatter used to rely on services making their logging calls
and passing the context there. A call it expted would be

    LOG.debug("Some message", context=context)

This would end up in the "extra" section of the logging record. This is
not usually the case, as projects don't always pass the context on that
call. This also applies to the Fluent formatter which is based on the
JSON one.

For the JSON formatter, we already are getting the context from the
record. So lets use that if no context was provided in the record's
'extra' section. Finally, this places the context in its own section,
which is named 'context'.

The JSON based formatters (namely JSONFormatter and FluentFormatter) now
output an extra section called 'context' that contains the context-related
keys and values, e.g. user, project and domain.
