    METRON-1289: Alert fields are lost when a MetaAlert is created

    ## Contributor Comments
    This PR fixes a bug in the ElasticsearchMetaAlertDao that incorrectly updates the included
alerts.  To reproduce this error, pick any alert and record it's guid.  Then create a metaalert
with the http://node1:8082/swagger-ui.html#!/meta-alert-controller/createUsingPOST endpoint:
      "groups": [
      "guidToIndices": {"dcb3afed-1b68-d88a-7adb-f38183867920":"bro_index_2017.11.01.13"}
    Now perform a lookup on the same alert with the http://node1:8082/swagger-ui.html#!/search-controller/getLatestUsingPOST
      "guid": "dcb3afed-1b68-d88a-7adb-f38183867920",
      "sensorType": "bro"
    The result only contains the "metaalert" field:
      "metaalerts": [
    This PR corrects this error by updating the alert with the full object instead of a partial
object.  After this PR, following the steps above should return the full object including
the new "metaalert" field.
    A `getAllLatest` function was added to make IndexDao match the pattern used for findOne.
 An HBase implementation was not added because it seemed unnecessary but it could be if it
makes sense.  Test cases were added to catch the error above and for the new `getAllLatest`
function.  This has been verified in full dev.
