Add support for torznab search provider for torrents.

torznab -- https://github.com/Sonarr/Sonarr/wiki/Implementing-a-Torznab-indexer

torznab is forked from newznab http://newznab.readthedocs.io/en/latest/misc/api/

This allows providers to implement the API, this is often far more efficient then having a search page scraped. It allows users to request staff on the site they use to implement the API to allow backlog searching without the provider having to be added to sickrage. Searches are not broken by site changes.

this also allows for the use of Jackett https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett

There is already newznab support for NZB searches
