Add size option to percolate api #3440

Add a size option to the percolate api in order to limit the number of matches being returned:

curl -XGET 'localhost:9200/my-index/my-type/_percolate' -d '{
   "size" : 10,
   "doc" : {...}

In the above request no more than 10 matches will be returned. The count field will still return the total number of matches the document matched with.

The size option is not applicable for the count percolate api.

Added `size` option to percolate api for limiting the number of match…
…es being returned

The `size` option both applies for the percolate and the count percolate api. If `size` is used in the percolate count api, the percolate execution is short circuited if on the shard level enough matches have been found. This short circuit mechanism can also be used for the percolate api with the `short_circuit` option that is available only in the percolate api. The `short_circuit` options defaults to false.

By default all matching queries are returned / counted in both percolate apis, so this limiting isn't active

Closes elastic#3440
