layout.conf: Add manifest-required-hashes setting
Add the manifest-required-hashes setting that specifies which hashes need to be present in the Manifest files for Portage to consider old distfile checksums acceptable (and not refetch the files to rehash them). It is complementary to manifest-hashes that specifies which hashes are used in new/updated entries. Formerly, this setting was hardcoded in Portage. However, the new Portage release will no longer do that and instead expect layout.conf to supply the setting.
