Reject obsolete router/extrainfo descs more quietly.

Thanks to proposal 315 / ticket #30132, more fields are now
required in these documents.  But ancient Tors that try to upload
obsolete documents were causing the authorities to log warnings
about missing fields, and to do so very spammily.

We now detect the missing fields before tokenizing, and log at
debug.  This is a bit of ugliness, but it's probably a safer choice
than making _all_ unparseable-desc warnings into debug-level logs.

I'm looking at identity-ed25519 in extrainfos and proto in
routerdescs because they were (I believe) the latest-added fields in
Tor's history: any Tor that lacks them will also lack the other
newly required fields.
