[macios-devel] Dual mono clones

To ease our development for watchOS we'll have 2 distinct submodules of
mono, one in external/mono and another in external/watch-mono (which will
be added shortly <https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/pull/56>).

The second one will be used to build the mono runtimes for the watch
simulator and watch device, as well as the Xamarin.WatchOS BCL.

The reason for this split is so that the regular mono submodule
(external/mono) can track what will become our next stable version of mono
(the mono-4.5.0-branch), while the watchOS development, which is still
seeing a lot of work (and is thus by definition not very stable) can track
mono/master (and not affect neither the iOS nor tvOS bits).

Build times will be somewhat slower, so if you wish it's possible to
disable building any watchOS bits by adding "INCLUDE_WATCH=" (defining the
variable to an empty value) to Make.config.local in the root xamarin-macios
