Further integration of Dispatch into Foundation #338

This makes some minor changes that gets us closer to having Dispatch built and included in CoreFoundation and Foundation, including:

  • Switching CFRunLoop to use the new 4CF functions in libdispatch
    Note that these APIs are only available in the `experimental/foundation' branch of libdispatch.
  • Adding a basic implementation for pthread_main_np()
    There isn't an implementation in Glibc and there isn't a shim today. We should potentially move the implementation to the Glibc overlay.
  • Updated the build scripts to include Dispatch in Foundation as well as CoreFoundation
    This is still commented out as there's a number of compile errors in NSOperation and the incoming NSURLSession code - we should fix those up before uncommenting this code.

The changes should allow anyone to build a toolchain with Dispatch enabled by:

  1. Extracting the experimental/foundation branch of swift-corelibs-libdispatch
  2. Uncommenting the code in
  3. Running a build with the libdispatch and install-libdispatch flags added
