Flatten android artifacts layout

Registered by Данило Шеган

We want to "flatten" the layout of published android artifacts: i.e. instead of having "target/product/<boardname>/" as the base path for artifacts, we want them to appear in the top-level directory instead.

With the first step, we do not want to move howto/* files into top-level as well, because that complicates access management.

we want this to become

[gesha 2012-12-07] Successfully reshuffled artifacts http://staging.snapshots.linaro.org/android/~gesha/galaxynexus-jb-gcc47-aosp-blob/1
[gesha 2012-12-11] Vishal updated HOWTOs http://review.android.git.linaro.org/#change,3155
[gesha 2012-12-11] Sent out and email to the <email address hidden> on updating SOURCE_OVERLAY in android jobs
[gesha 2012-12-17] HOWTOs are updated in git tree and builds starting 2012-12-13 are producing updated HOWTOs
[deepti 2012-12-19] Its been decided to add a check to stop the android builds if the SOURCE_OVERLAY information is not passed as part of the configuration. The changes are present in lp:~deeptik/linaro-android-build-tools/source_overlay_check branch and has been approved for merging.
[gesha 2012-12-20] Successfull build with new artifacts layout https://android-build.linaro.org/jenkins/job/gesha_galaxynexus-jb-gcc47-aosp-blob/13 and on snapshots https://snapshots.linaro.org/android/~gesha/galaxynexus-jb-gcc47-aosp-blob/13

Headline: Publish android builds in a flat directory layout on snapshots.linaro.org.
Acceptance: New android builds are published in a flat directory layout on snapshots.linaro.org with only howto/ still being a subdirectory of the top-level build output directory.
Roadmap id: http://cards.linaro.org/browse/CARD-272
