I've added:
- new NF_EXIT NatFeats command
- example code for using that to tests/natfeats/natfeats.c
- support for tracing NatFeats calls (to help debugging
  potential issues with those)

I'll change TOS tester to use this as it will speed up
running the tests.  Currently test runner just waits
"long enough" and then kills Hatari before checking
the results & proceeding to next test.

(Max wait time check is still needed in case Hatari bootup
gets stuck with some machine, CPU core & TOS combo.)
