When we run layout tests, we have an archive associated with that test run. Currently, we store these archives in Buildbot. This is a problem because they're difficult to search through in an automated fashion and they take up a lot of space. Instead, we should support uploading these archives to the results database.

I'm going to keep the combined diff around in this change, Aakash wants me to break it up to make it easier to review.
I am not very clear on the purpose of this change. What's the benefit of uploading archive as opposed to uploading parsed text data?

The parsed data is quite general, just test names and whether they passed or failed. The archive may have much more detailed data, such as crash logs or (in the case of layout tests) the actual test diffs.
