Joe Finney 3395f66d3d microbit: Added configurable event processing options into MicroBitEvent
Events in the micro:bit runtime are normally launched through making an instance
of the MicroBitEvent class. This update added configuration support to all the
code creating the MicroBitEvent decide if the newly created event should then be
automatically queued on the MessageBus or processed immediately by event handlers.

Joe Finney a875d5fccd microbit: Added configurable concurrency modes for MicroBitMessageBus handlers.
MessageBus handlers can now have one of four concurrency modes for the eventuality
of an event being raised whilst a previous event is still being processed. An additional
(optional) parameter is provided to the listen() functions to allow this to be selected
on a per event handler basis. The permissable options are:

MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_REENTRANT:
The event handler is fired with the new event, regardless of whether or not
a previous event is still be processed by that handler.

MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_QUEUE_IF_BUSY:
The new event is queued until such a time as the previous event has completed
execution. The new event is then processed. This option does not preclude the
processing of the new event by other event handlers.

MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_DROP_IF_BUSY:
The new event is dropped, and will never be processed the the event handler.
This option does not preclude the processing of the new event by other event handlers.

MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_NONBLOCKING:
The event handler is self-declaring that it never blocks. This flag is used purely
for optimisation, as it permits direct execution of the event hadnelr without inducing
any overhead from the scheduler.

In addition, the following minor revisions were made in this release:

* Cleanup of the #include dependencies contained in the microbit-dal .h files
* Bugfix to the scheduler block on event matching code.
* Introduced a MICROBIT_ID_ALERT MessageBus channel, for general purpose eventing using nonces.

Joe Finney 6470b71b1d microbit: Conditional compilation on MicroBitConfig
All options defined in MicroBitConfig are now set IFF they already do not have a value.
This allows external configuration of these options much more cleanly. Additional macros
also defined to provide clean implementation for boolean configuration switches.

Also some minor bugfixes:

  - Correction of typo of "Microbit.h" => "MicroBit.h"
  - Fixed heap corruption bug on gcc as a result of a debug printf in an unsafe context.
