Final Call for Review: Modular SuperCore Scheduler

I have just uploaded my changes that resolve the issues raised in the
initial code reviews.  The discussion about these changes is logged in the
PR 1647 (linked in Joel's previous message).

Since this code is a major re-haul of the supercore thread manager /
scheduling subsystem, its performance on all platforms is a primary
concern.  I have been able to test the code in the sis and psim simulators
with the tmtests.  If anyone else can run these tests on the pre- and
post-patched RTEMS for other platforms and post/send results it would be
useful to flag any other possible issues related to processor architecture
