Added Rhealstone benchmark to testsuites

The Rhealstone benchmarks six operations that are critical components
of a real-time system. It allows for an objective analysis to be
performed, and allows for comparisons between systems.
See rhealstone/README for more information.

1== Rhealstone Benchmark For RTEMS
2
3This is an implementation of the Rhealstone benchmarks for RTEMS.
4
5The Rhealstone metric is a set of benchmarks that aim to provide an independently
6verifiable objective measure of real-time performance in different systems. The
7Rhealstone metric is composed of six independent benchmarks, each of which measure
8an activity that is critical in real time systems:
9
10* Task switch time
11* Task preemption time
12* Interrupt latency time
13* Semaphore shuffle time
14* Deadlock breaking time
15* Intertask message latency
16
17An implementation of the Rhealstone metric allows for RTEMS performance to be
18compared with other real-time systems.
