* user_get_user_details_courses() now accepts an optional second parameter, an array of userfields that should be
  returned. The values passed into the $userfields parameter must all be included in the return from
  user_get_default_fields().
  It also allows you to reduce how much of a user record is required by the method. The minimum user record fields are:
    * id
    * deleted
    * all potential fullname fields
