Add a fast version of the testsuite The idea is to have a way to run as much of the testsuite as possible in a short time, so that we'll run it more often (such as just before checking in a change, for example). 'make fast' tries for good coverage without using too many cycles. Currently it takes about 4 minutes on a fast machine with an optimised GHC build; I think this might still be a little on the slow side. When you say 'make fast' in testsuite/tests/ghc-regress, we run each test only one way, and all of the long-running tests are omitted. Also, to get the runtime down further, I arbitrarily omitted many of the should_run tests (because these tend to take a lot longer than should_compile or should_fail tests). I tried to keep a representative few in each category.
