Switch to new Merkle tree implementation
Switch the crypto package to using the new library merkletree-blake. This new library is almost the same as the old library, except that some of the interfaces are now hardcoded types. The result is massively fewer allocations when uploading and downloading, which all but eliminates the garbage collection pressure, and results in better overall performance for siad.
