Maybe this should just be a renaming patch (if the renaming is OK) from
rtems_rate_monotonic to rtems_periodic first.  Then we can attack how or if the
supercore needs to be aware of periodic tasks.

My intuition is that the thread manager or scheduler should be aware if a task
is periodic in nature, which indicates some aspect of periodic tasks should be
in the supercore.  But I don't have a use case quite yet.

The justification for a separate rtems_periodic_xxx API remains that it makes
it easier to use periodic tasks in non rate monotonic schedulers.
