Double precision math library and support on pyboard, and improved ussl

This release brings general improvements and bug fixes to the core and
various ports, as well as documentation additions, clean-ups and better
consistency.  And effort has been made to clean up the source code to
make it more consistent across the core and all ports.

There is a new tool "" to convert arbitrary (binary) files
to Python resources for inclusion in source code (frozen or otherwise).

The ussl module has seen improvements, including implementation of
server_hostname (for axtls) and server_side mode (for mbedtls).

There is now a double-precision float math library and stmhal has support
to build firmware with software or hardware double-precision.
