selftests: add basic posix timers selftests
Add some initial basic tests on a few posix timers interface such as setitimer() and timer_settime(). These simply check that expiration happens in a reasonable timeframe after expected elapsed clock time (user time, user + system time, real time, ...). This is helpful for finding basic breakages while hacking on this subsystem.
