Add support for other ways of triggering intermediate result outputs
Fio has support for using the USR1 signal to dump the current results while continuing to run. Add a --status-interval parameter to allow this to be configured to automatically happen every X seconds. There's also support for signaling fio through the file system. To do that, simply touch /tmp/fio-dump-status. When fio sees this file, it will unlink and dump the current results. A small tweak is needed for the file approach to work in Windows.
