emirrordist: add --content-db option required for content-hash layout (bug 756778)
Add a --content-db option which is required for the content-hash layout because its file listings return content digests instead of distfile names. The content db serves to translate content digests to distfiles names, and distfiles names to content digests. All keys have one or more prefixes separated by colons. For a digest key, the first prefix is "digest" and the second prefix is the hash algorithm name. For a filename key, the prefix is "filename". The value associated with a digest key is a set of file names. The value associated with a distfile key is a set of content revisions. Each content revision is expressed as a dictionary of digests which is suitable for construction of a DistfileName instance. A given content digest will translate to multiple distfile names if multiple associations have been created via the content db add method. The relationship between a content digest and a distfile name is similar to the relationship between an inode and a hardlink.
