[kaffe] JThreads

As I am working on the implementation of NIO, I needed to slightly adapt 
JThreads. The main issue was to let a thread wait on multiple file at 
the same time. Alas, the only clean way to do it was to rewrite the 
queueing system. :-( Now all queues are separated and a thread may 
register itself on a variable number of queue when it blocks and so 
jthreadedSelect works correctly now (it does not block Kaffe anymore). 
The new code seems to work (all regression tests pass, KJC works). At 
the same time I've noticed that ThreadStop is marked as "to be skipped": 
apparently kaffe's output is good according to JDK's output and the both 
naturally fail for the first test.

I'll commit all these modifications once Kaffe 1.1.1 is released so I 
can go on with NIO...
