fn info() &LiveReloadInfo

LiveReloadInfo.live_linkfn should be called by the reloader to dlsym all live functions. TODO: research a way to implement live_linkfn in pure V, without complicating live code generation too much.

The callbacks: cb_compile_fail, cb_before, cb_after will be executed outside the mutex protected section, so be careful, if you modify your data inside them. They can race with your [live] functions.

cb_locked_before and cb_locked_after will be executed inside the mutex protected section. They can NOT race with your [live] functions. They should be very quick in what they do though, otherwise your live functions can be delayed.

live.info - give user access to program's LiveReloadInfo struct, so that the user can set callbacks, read meta information, etc.
