Currently, hawkclient, hawkrequest and restrequest don't support Rest Requests for the PATCH method.

We need this for Loop as one of the APIs uses PATCH.

HawkClient, HawkRequest and RESTRequest should support PATCH requests

This does the necessary work to add support for PATCH requests.

I've re-enabled the test_hawkclient.js test, as MOZ_SERVICES_FXACCOUNTS is no longer part of the build system, hence what was done in http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/0eb6ed1dc691 no longer works, and the test is never run.

Try push should be here: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/ui/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=3806f5e95dc6

Chris, would you be able to review this today or really soon? We're trying to get some of Loop uplifted to aurora asap, and we need this as part of it. Thanks.

Hi Mark,

I'm sorry I didn't get to this Friday. I gave it the once over and so far it looks fine. I'll finish it Monday, but in the meantime, :rfk could you also sanity check this?

Thanks, we've actually made it so that this doesn't block what we were hoping to push out to nightly users, though it still obviously blocks part of the feature (renaming rooms), so we'd still like to land it early this week if possible.
This seems sensible to me.  I don't grok the JS testing stuff enough to check the details of refactoring there but it all seems fine at a high level.
