core: thread: Implement polling for wakeups.
For some reason the core_pm_hook is not getting called every time we get an interrupt with the result that in some situations like arping for our neighbours mac address or a tftp transfer we can stall, we never move forward again. The reason for those stalls likely bears more investigating but for now it is sufficient for me to know that they exist and that I can work around them by polling for wakekup conditions everytime we call schedule. That gives us code that works reliably and stays within the letter of the pxe spec. The oddities of the pxelinux core can be ironed out later. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
