Support for stream decompression in uzlib, and more ESP8266 features

This release includes some bug fixes, code clean-up, updates to the docs,
more tests, and various feature additions.  The uzlib module now supports
efficient stream decompression in the form of the uzlib.DecompIO class.
Freezing of bytecode now supports floats for the ESP8266 port, as well as
complex numbers for all ports.  The stmhal port has ADC working on L4
microcontrollers, fixed initialisation for DAC, and addition of the
machine.WDT class and machine.reset_cause function.

For the ESP8266 port Pin(16) now works as an input pin and the hardware
SPI peripheral is exposed as machine.SPI(1).  The os.umount function is
implemented and the port supports mounting of externally connected SD
cards.  The machine.WDT class is added, wlan.scan() is fixed to return all
access points, and there is support for DS18S20 devices.
