Mad professor control unit

We are experimenting with real time controls for the milling operation and came up with this unit cobbled together from dumpster spoils and the Big Dome Push Button. Now we can tweak the feed rate in real time using the sliding pot, see if we suffer buffer underruns because of poor serial comms and we have two buttons for pause and emergency stop. There is an experimental branch up on github if you want to experiment with real time feed rate tweaking: Control. (Warning: The pins had to be remapped. Be sure to check config.h for the updated pin out.)

In related news: We finally have gotten through most of the code for a look ahead optimizing acceleration manager for Grbl. It is completely untested yet, but if you are so inclined you can have a look at the code in this experimental branch. The details will be explained in a proper blog post later.
