Add functionality and tools to artdaq for diagnosing and debugging DAQ hardware and firmware
Engineers often expect DAQ systems to include tools for interacting with the front-end and DAQ hardware and firmware. (To be contrasted with the primary DAQ function of reading out the data.)
We should investigate how to include this in artdaq.

As of artdaq v1_13_03, the CommandableFragmentGenerator class has an optional thread which periodically calls a user-defined method that collects hardware status information. This functionality can be used to automatically stop readout if a fault condition is detected.
