[vz-dev] vzlogger support for s0 meters on raspberry pi gpio pins

implemented this at last, after nobody else did.
very first version, but seems to work so far.

thanks to udo for providing the hardware...

(includes config example)

$ git clone -b raspis0 https://github.com/r00t-/vzlogger.git vzlogger_raspis0

what sucks about this:
- it clones the whole S0-meter code,
  would be better to share common stuff
- currently polls the gpio value
  the GPIO pins should support interrupts, would be much much better.
  (even the s0 on rs232 meter does not poll)
- the s0 meter in general needs fixing (like not consume 2 impulses per reading)
  but so does the whole codebase

- T.

the main thing that held me off doing this was frustration about lack of documentation.
today i looked again, and found how to get access to the gpios:
(everybody else just told me the gpio/gpio*/value files already existed for them)
echo 17 >/sys/class/gpio/export
echo in >/sys/class/gpio/gpio17/direction
cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio17/value
(that document also seems to explain how to use edge detection interrupts,
 will try to add that)
