Added --as-external-table option when using --hive-import option, --target-dir option and
--table-location option.

--as-external-table - makes the destination table external table
--table-location - external table HDFS location

> Sqoop is not supporting HIVE external tables at the moment. Any imports using scoop creates
a managed table, in real world scenario it is very important to have EXTERNAL tables. As of
now we have to execute ALTER statement to change table properties to make the the table as
external table which is not a big deal but it would nice have an option in scoop to specify
type of table which is required
