curl_easy_perform_ev: debug/test function

This function is meant to work *exactly* as curl_easy_perform() but will
use the event-based libcurl API internally instead of
curl_multi_perform(). To avoid relying on an actual event-based library
and to not use non-portable functions (like epoll or similar), there's a
rather inefficient emulation layer implemented on top of Curl_poll()

There's currently some convenience logging done in curl_easy_perform_ev
which helps when tracking down problems. They may be suitable to remove
or change once things seem to be fine enough.

curl has a new --test-event option when built with debug enabled that
then uses curl_easy_perform_ev() instead of curl_easy_perform(). If
built without debug, using --test-event will only output a warning

NOTE: curl_easy_perform_ev() is not part if the public API on purpose.
It is only present in debug builds of libcurl and MUST NOT be considered
stable even then. Use it for libcurl-testing purposes only. now features an -e command line option that makes it use
--test-event for all curl command line tests. The man page is updated.

I build curl.exe (using MingW) with '-DCURLDEBUG' and by importing from libcurl.dll.
Which means the new curl_easy_perform_ev() must be exported from libcurl.dll.
