Add Autoscaling features to various buildpacks

Currently auto-scaling only allows us to scale by memory for non libery buildpacks. I'd like to see the same for every buildpack

    The current  Autoscaler provides more metrics support than memory only for IBM runtimes/buildpacks ( Liberty, node.js, Swift ), for other runtimes, you can only scale based on memory.  Please see more details on IBM Cloud docs page:

    The support of throughput and response time based scaling for other runtimes/buildpacks will be in the open source edition. 
    The heap based scaling support in open source edition depends on a garden feature to be able to collect application custom metric and send to Loggregator, it is still under discussion.
