External dependent tests in gecko and gaia

Hi dev-platform,

TL;DR - Cloud Services and Quality Engineering would like to propose the creation of a directory named “external" in gecko and gaia repos for externally dependent tests.  

This enables features married to Cloud Services such as Loop, FindMyDevice, FirefoxAccounts, and Sync to have centralized tests that can be run locally or on other continuous integration systems. These tests would live in this "external” directory along side existing tests (so they live together). These will be run and sheriffed independently from the main tests.  Reviews would be governed by modules and feature teams.
