Fix Version/s: None
Sprint:TSSW Sprint - Nov 25 - Dec 6

DM-22293 is implemented topic metadata becomes available in salobj: in particular:
- description and units for each field
Also I hope we will eventually a description for each topic, but it's not in the IDL yet. See
Write this metadata to the Avro schema. Where practical match the old EFD schema. See https://sqr-029.lsst.io/#id17
At the top level add:
- sal_version. This existed in the original EFD
- xml_version. This is new.
For each field add:
- description: the description (formerly called "doc")
- units: one guess (formerly called "sal_units")
Angelo Fausti requests that the fields be an empty string if the data is unknown. This requires translation because salobj uses None.
