bug 1438735 - balrog scriptworker push and schedule support. r=bhearsum - add balrog submit-toplevel - this replaces the final portion of the updates builder. - rename balrog transform to balrog_submit, because it's for balrog locale submission - make this default to the 'promote' phase. balrog and beetmover currently take the current phase, which isn't always the wanted behavior. - rename balrog publish to balrog schedule - add balrog secondary push and secondary scheduling, for RCs - remove the release_updates transforms - make the task.py balrog transforms smarter - get rid of the release_balrog_publishing transforms; ad a generic worker_type transform - add BALROG_ACTIONS to scriptworker.py - add get_balrog_action_scope() - remove the unused balrog channel scopes MozReview-Commit-ID: 369ACiOAd5F

 * output stream may suspend the calling thread in order to satisfy a call to
 * Close, Flush, Write, WriteFrom, or WriteSegments.  A non-blocking output
 * stream, on the other hand, must not block the calling thread of execution.
 *
 * NOTE: blocking output streams are often written to on a background thread to
 * avoid locking up the main application thread.  For this reason, it is
 * generally the case that a blocking output stream should be implemented using
 * thread- safe AddRef and Release.
