bryanburgers and hawkw Add `Runtime::enter` (#25)
* Add `Runtime::enter`

Add a `Runtime::enter` function that allows the caller to enter the
runtime context without calling `run`, `spawn`, or `block_on`. This
mirrors the `enter` function from Tokio 0.2's runtime.

* Fix tests

Fix the current_thread test that would fail all the time. Also fix the
threadpool test which was failing intermittently.

* Clean up unnecessary code

This crate provides compatibility runtimes that allow running both futures 0.1 futures that use tokio 0.1 runtime services and std::future futures that use tokio 0.2 runtime services.


Spawning both tokio 0.1 and tokio 0.2 futures:

use futures_01::future::lazy;

tokio_compat::run(lazy(|| {
    // spawn a `futures` 0.1 future using the `spawn` function from the
    // `tokio` 0.1 crate:
    tokio_01::spawn(lazy(|| {
        println!("hello from tokio 0.1!");

    // spawn an `async` block future on the same runtime using `tokio`
    // 0.2's `spawn`:
    tokio_02::spawn(async {
        println!("hello from tokio 0.2!");


Futures on the compat runtime can use timer APIs from both 0.1 and 0.2 versions of tokio:

use std::time::{Duration, Instant};
use futures_01::future::lazy;
use tokio_compat::prelude::*;

tokio_compat::run_std(async {
    // Wait for a `tokio` 0.1 `Delay`...
    let when = Instant::now() + Duration::from_millis(10);
        // convert the delay future into a `std::future` that we can `await`.
        .expect("tokio 0.1 timer should work!");
    println!("10 ms have elapsed");

    // Wait for a `tokio` 0.2 `Delay`...
    let when = Instant::now() + Duration::from_millis(20);
    println!("20 ms have elapsed");
