Custom Log Library Tracing - Collecting multiple attributes through Instana Java log.SDK.

Now we can collect log.message of custom log library through log.SDK. 

But it can collect only one attribute (log.message) and you can not collect multiple attributes. 

our client's custom log library has several attributes such as bellow.

com.client.originallog.error ( threadId, sessionID, messageID, message )

com.client.originallog.warn( threadId, sessionID, messageID, message )

Along with the log message itself,  collecting these multiple attributes is necessary to identify the root cause of the application problem.

In some Instana log library (like log.log4j2 or log.jul), it can have multiple tags such as log.custom.

So even for log.SDK, please support collecting multiple log attributes and display it as tags of log message.
