Description (partial)

This bug is tracking a change to introduce a CLI to control the hiding of username in syslog

Default behaviour was changed to mask the username:

%ASA-6-113005: AAA user authentication Rejected : reason = AAA failure : server = : user = ***** : user IP =

This is intentional incase a user accidentally enters their password in the username field.

The CLI that will be introduced as part of this bug will provide a configuration value to not mask the username.
