Now that the big context switches bugs have been solved, here is a patch
that adds a unit test for context switches and FPU switches
with various type of threads (kernel, user, user in secondary mode,
not using FPU, using FPU, etc...). As is the case of the latency test
there is a small RTDM driver in kernel-space, put in the benchmark
class, even though this test is for unit testing, not for benchmarking.
The FPU switches need a small piece of code architecture dependent,
put in <asm/xenomai/fptest.h>, currently only implemented for x86.
The kernel-space driver is called xeno_switchtest.ko, the user-space
testing tool is called switchtest, because there is already a context
switch benchmarking tool called "switch".
does this maybe warrant a rename of both, to preclude the inevitable
'whats the difference between' Qs (sent or unsent) ?
