    SQOOP-3387: Add column remarks to avro schema file

    Needs further work to work with different databases.
    E. g. to work with Oracle we would need to add ojdbc jar as a dependency and setRemarksReporting(true)
in OracleManager when opening a connection.

>             Project: Sqoop
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: connectors, metastore
>    Affects Versions: 1.4.7
>            Reporter: Tomas Sebastian Hätälä
>            Priority: Critical
>              Labels: easy-fix, features
>             Fix For: 1.5.0
> In most RDBMS it is possible to enter comments/ remarks for table and view columns. That
way a user can obtain additional information regarding the data and how to use it.
> With the avro file format it would be possible to store this information in the schema
file using the "doc"-tag. At the moment this is, however, left blanc.
