Added --as-external-table option when using --hive-import option, --target-dir 
option and --table-location option.

--as-external-table - makes the destination table external table
--table-location - external table HDFS location

> Sqoop is not supporting HIVE external tables at the moment. Any imports using 
> scoop creates a managed table, in real world scenario it is very important to 
> have EXTERNAL tables. As of now we have to execute ALTER statement to change 
> table properties to make the the table as external table which is not a big 
> deal but it would nice have an option in scoop to specify type of table which 
> is required
