      Description

      One of the performance issues noticed in the HA branch is due to the much larger edit logs, now that we are writing OP_ADD transactions to the edit log on every block allocation. We can condense these calls down in two ways:
      1) use variable-length integers for the block list length, size, and genstamp (most of these end up fitting in far less than 8 bytes)
      2) use delta-coding for the genstamp and block size for any blocks after the first block (most blocks will be the same size and only slightly higher genstamps)
      3) introduce a new OP_UPDATE_BLOCKS transaction that doesn't re-serialize metadata information like lease owner, permissions, etc
      4) allow OP_UPDATE_BLOCKS to only re-serialize the blocks that have changed for a given transaction
