* Migrate from setup.hint to pvr.hint in release area

I also plan to migrate all remaining setup.hints to pvr.hints in the release area (setup.hint in uploads have been automatically migrated since [5]).

This should have no effect on the generated setup.ini, but enables some complexity (some of which isn't implemented properly, see [6]) to be removed from calm.

I've done this migration today.

At some point in the future calm/mksetupini will stop supporting setup.hints in the release area. (calm will still accept and migrate uploads containing a setup.hint, as per [1])

I recently deployed this change, so in the unlikely event that:

- you have a private package repository, AND
- it contains some packages which are old enough to have a setup.hint

You'll need to successfully run 'calm-tool hint-migrate' on that repository before you can use calm >= 20190530.

So, for the record, if you have an up-to-date calm installed, this migration can be done with 'calm-tool hint-migrate [--releasearea=...]'
