Change request - Convert smolt host table to innodb

Hi, we've been looking at all the smolt outages recently, and after
looking into it a bit, we'd like to try converting the host table in the
smolt database to InnoDB so that we will get row level locking.

This is a very low impact change, and when we tested in staging, it
caused smolt to stop accepting new submissions for about 20 minutes
(smoltSendProfile will simply time out during that period).  If we run
into any issues, we can easily revert back to MyISAM (and doing so took
<5 minutes on staging).  

Can I get two +1s for this?
