Review request for mesos and Jie Yu.

Bugs: MESOS-7304

Repository: mesos


The fetcher cache directory was historically located (by default)
in `/tmp/mesos/fetch`.  The agent flag `--fetcher_cache_dir` could
be used to change this value.

The fetcher would create a subdirectory underneath `/tmp/mesos/fetch`
for each `SlaveID`.  This was done because multiple agents can run on
the same node.  If all the agents use the same default fetcher cache
directory, they will collide and cause unpredictable results.
As a result, the `SlaveID` needed to be passed into the fetcher
after the agent recovers and/or registers with the master, because
that is when the `SlaveID` is determined.

This changes the default fetcher cache directory to
`/tmp/mesos/fetch/XXXXXX`, where the 6 X's are replaced by `::mkdtemp`.
The `SlaveID` subdirectory has also been removed.

This change, while techically a breaking change, is safe because of
how the fetcher uses this directory.  Upon starting up, the fetcher
"recovers" by clearing this directory.  By using a temporary directory,
we similarly get an empty fetcher cache upon startup.

This change will only cause breakages if multiple agents are run
with the same `--fetcher_cache_dir`.  In this case, each agent
will delete the fetcher caches of all the other agents.
