uml: eliminate interrupts in the idle loop
Now, the idle loop now longer needs SIGALRM firing - it can just sleep for the requisite amount of time and fake a timer interrupt when it finishes. Any use of ITIMER_REAL now goes away. disable_timer only turns off ITIMER_VIRTUAL. switch_timers is no longer needed, so it, and all calls, goes away. disable_timer now returns the amount of time remaining on the timer. default_idle uses this to tell idle_sleep how long to sleep. idle_sleep will call alarm_handler if nanosleep returns 0, which is the case if it didn't return early due to an interrupt. Otherwise, it just returns.
