Add a benchmarking-only mode to the test suite

Description

Add a benchmarking-only mode to the test suite

This adds a benchmarking-only mode to the test suite, which excludes those
programs unlikely to use useful as benchmarks. When BENCHMARKING_ONLY is
defined, the following programs should be excluded:

I constructed this exclusion list primarily based on the following experiment:
I ran the test suite 10 times in three configurations: 1) On an IBM POWER7 (P7)
with -O3 -mvsx, 2) On a P7 at -O0 and 3) On an Intel Xeon E5430 with -O3 all
using make -j6. I then used the ministat utility (which performs a T test) to
compare the timings of the two P7 configurations against each other and the
Xeon configuration, requiring a detectable difference at 99.5% confidence. I
looked for tests that showed no significant difference in all three
comparisons. The running configuration here is purposefully noisy, the idea is
to eliminate those tests that are significantly sensitive to startup time, file
I/O time, memory bandwidth, etc., or just too short, and by running many tests
in parallel (non-deterministically), my hope is to eliminate those tests can
cannot usefully serve as benchmarks in a "normal" environment.
