Hello All!

This series adds support for instrumenting the build process, reworked
after discussion both on the ML and during the developpers' day.

It works as thus:
  - we register a set of hooks
  - hooks are called before and after each steps

There are currently two hooks defined:
  - log steps with timings (as an example of how to do a hook)
  - call a user-supplied scripts

More hooks can be added later on. Specifically, we may want to add a
script (in support/scripts or wherever) that runs some verifications
after packages are installed (in target/ and staging/), for example
to check for RPATH, or to check scripts do not have build-dir paths
in them (eg python scripts)...

I'm planning on adding at least one other hook, that runs all scripts
present in support/step-hooks/ (or whatever its name).

Changes v3 -> v4:
  - rename user-supplied hook  (Thomas DS)
  - typoes  (Thomas DS)

Changes v2 -> v3:
  - rename the internal variable that holds the hooks  (Thomas DS)
  - misc typo fixes  (Thomas DS)

Changes v1 -> v2:
  - removed the intra-steps instrumentation  (Thomas, Peter)
  - accept a list of user-supplied hooks, not only one hook  (Thomas)

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
