In the past, when the user blocked for an IRQ signal, the last signal was
acknowledged automatically thereby unmasking the IRQ. Now, the signal session
got a dedicated RPC for acknowledging IRQs and the HW back-end of that RPC
acknowledged the IRQ signal too. This led to the situation that IRQs were
unmasked twice. However, drivers expect an interrupt to be unmasked only on
the Irq_session::ack_irq and thus IRQ unmasking was moved from
Kernel::ack_signal to a dedicated kernel call.
White list access to ports we actually need for our drivers so far and
deny everything else by default. The extend pci config space dataspace is
currently not used and exposes a potential risk (BAR rewrite) - so deny.

If a null-terminated string exactly of length MAX (0 byte included) is
provided, it will be handled as invalid because of wrong string size length
Commit fixes this.
Discovered during #1486 development.
The thread library (thread.cc) in base-foc shared 95% of the code with
the generic implementation except myself(). Therefore, its
implementation is now separated from the other generic sources into
myself.cc, which allows base-foc to use a foc-specific primitive to
enable our base libraries in L4Linux.
Otherwise RPC calls to dead/invalid destinations are rated as successful,
which leads to wrong execution paths later on. Triggered by bomb.run where
rm_session.attach() returned as successful with local address set to 0, which
causes un-handled page-faults later on.
Physical CPU quota was previously given to a thread on construction only
by directly specifying a percentage of the quota of the according CPU
session. Now, a new thread is given a weighting that can be any value.
The physical counter-value of such a weighting depends on the weightings
of the other threads at the CPU session. Thus, the physical quota of all
threads of a CPU session must be updated when a weighting is added or
removed. This is each time the session creates or destroys a thread.
This commit also adapts the "cpu_quota" test in base-hw accordingly.
Use the new asynchronous IRQ interface in the mostly used drivers, e.g.:
* ahci_drv: x86/exynos5
* gpio_drv: imx53/omap4
* input_drv: imx53/dummy
* ps2_drv: x86/pl050
Now, the Irq_session is requested from Gpio::Session:
From now on we use an asynchronous IRQ interface. To prevent triggering
another GPIO IRQ while currently handling the former one, IRQs must
now by acknowledged explicitly. While here, we also changed the GPIO
session interface regarding IRQ management. The generic GPIO component
now wraps the Irq_session managed by the backend instead of using the
GPIO backend methods directly. A client using the GPIO session may
request the Irq_session_capability by calling
'Gpio::Session::irq_session()' and can use this capability when using
a local Irq_session_client.
