Proposed Reorganization of Coverage Reporting

By bucket, I meant category or collection of symbols. Now we have core and "everything". I am proposing adding a report set basically by source directory.

This would still be in addition to the -O2/-Os and posix enable/disable variations.

It will not add to the build or test execution time. It will add to the report generation time. All views/categories can be generated from a single run.
