Support custom filenames #799

Move each package manager's filePattern into config/definitions.js so that users can override it by adding a custom file name. We should probably also add a "fail safe" to limit the number of package files resolved so we don't accidentally or deliberately end up with thousands of concurrent getFile requests.

Make filePatterns a mergeable array instead of a single string. That way the user can add to the existing filePatterns without having to copy/paste them. Users wanting to restrict the existing pattern should either (a) use ignorePaths or (b) submit an issue pointing out that our default filePattern has a problem.

feat: custom filenames for package files (#1894)
Renovate now comes with a variety of package managers supported, each with their own filename pattern(s). These patterns are now exposed for user configuration through the new `fileMatch` list/array configuration option, which has been added to each manager (npm, bazel, docker-compose, etc). `fileMatch` is defined as a mergeable list, meaning that users can add to the default pattern to extend the files being detected.

Closes #799
