Provide interval_end timestamp to metric plugins
Graphite, for example, takes a timestamp as part of its TCP input which can be used to correlate metrics in time. Currently, the end of the reporting_interval is not passed to metric plugins, so the graphite_metric plugin simply uses the current time. If sendMetric_ was given the end of the interval, backends which can report the time of the metric can have more accurate values.
