Investigate changes in SERVER-1599

      Description

      Change Description:

      Update command now supports index hints, similar to the count command and aggregation pipeline hints. Hint values may be the key value pattern or index name.

      SERVER ticket description:

      Support a way to pass a hint to update command to use a specific index for update query filter. Work done under this ticket will not prevent misuse of hinting, as reported by SERVER-26413.

      Original description:
      Change the behavior on the server for update to look for the special fields: $query, $sortby, $limit, $hint. If these are found treat them the same as the Op_Query does.

      This will allow sorting (so you can update the right element), $limit (so you can just update some of them), $hint (so you can force the right index) in addition to the normal $query part.

      This should be backwards compatible. It will either be a $query + other $ options, or just the query, without options (like it is now).
