Notification support in the kernel

The kernel can send notifications to a process.  Will need some merging
work with the glibc branch, especially regarding transition stacks and
userspace's job.  mhello has example code for what low-level user code
needs to do to request and receive notifications.

Note that you cannot notify vcore0 at this point, due to some glibc
issues.
