Implementation of the Hardware Fast Clock for LocoNet.

This module is based on a GUI module developed by Bob Jacobsen and Alex Shepherd to correct the LocoNet fast clock rate and synchronize it with the internal JMRI fast clock Timebase. The methods that actually send, correct, or receive information from the LocoNet hardware are repackaged versions of their code.

The LocoNet Fast Clock is controlled by the user via the Fast Clock Setup GUI that is accessed from the JMRI Tools menu.

For this implementation, "synchronize" implies "correct", since the two clocks run at a different rate.
