cg4: introduce protocol flag to signify the presence of sidedata

We need a way of signaling whether the current revision has sidedata or not,
and re-using the revision flags would waste potential revlog flags and mix two
normally independent layers.

In this change, we add a single byte at the start of the ch4 delta header to
set potential protocol flags. We also reclaim the revlog flag for sidedata,
since it is no longer used, in its place now lives the (also experimental)
copytracing flag.

When generating deltas, apply the CG_FLAG_SIDEDATA flag if there is sidedata.
When applying the deltas, if said flag is present, the next chunk contains the
sidedata.
