A Tock-based Bootloader

@bradjc mixed some existing pieces with some good-old-fashion elbow grease to rewrite the bootloader we use for the SAM4L (Hail and imix boards) using Tock! Better yet, most of the code is completely portable and can be used for any chip ported to Tock that has a UART, flash and GPIO implementation.
