 Add support for CPU pinning

 Added support for CPU pinning.  To use CPU pinning, a new per-node
 option "pin_cpus" must be specified in node.cfg, and the OS must be
 either Linux or FreeBSD (if such a node.cfg is used on another OS,
 then the "pin_cpus" option is ignored).  CPU pinning only applies
 to Bro itself, not to other processes that might be executed (such
 as helper scripts).  If the user specifies an invalid CPU number,
 then the affected Bro processes will not start, and an error message
 will be visible with the broctl diag command.

 Addresses #996.
