Use cron syntax for CONTINUOUS audits

Registered by Vincent Fran├žoise on 2017-01-27

As of now we use a period in seconds to schedule continuous audits. This works well but does not really give the flexibility that an operator might actually want. Therefore, we should also provide a way to express out scheduling needs via the cron syntax which shall give operators a fine grained control.

This change implies the refactoring of the API so backward compatibility should be guaranteed.
On the Watcher dashboard side, we should also provide an easy-to-use form to fill in this cron field.

We should also keep the cron syntax and the creation timestamp in the DB
