Provide HTTP downloads from android-build master

Registered by Paul Sokolovsky on 2011-10-03

Currently, we serve Android Build downloads via HTTPS, which, on sufficiently big files we serve, course both reduced bandwidth and extra CPU load with small EC2 instance it is run on. Set up HTTP for both external download of build artifacts, and internal (EC2 cloud) downloads of seed tarballs we're going to use soon.

Whiteboard

[pfalcon 2011-10-25]
EC2 seed download limitation was prepared, but not made active so far.

Headline:
Fast HTTP downloads are now available for daily Linaro Android builds.

Acceptance:
Daily and other builds can be downloaded via HTTP. Also, there's provision for download seed tarballs, preferably limited to EC2 IP's.
