[PATCH 2 of 5 flagprocessor v6] revlog: add 'raw' argument to revision and _addrevision

Long story short, we need to pass the raw argument to processflags() so
that it can determine which transform use. This allows to differentiate the
regular use case (transform operations such as reading from a remote store
in lfs's case) from changegroup generation and debug commands. The only way
to not pass the raw argument to revision would be to refactor all flag
processing / checkhash out of revision and _addrevision, but that seems
like a significant rework in a really core part of revlog.
