    Add function to decode distribution header

    There is currently no way to use erl_interface with non-blocking
    sockets. This patch adds a function ei_decode_header() that can decode
    the distribution header of a message sent to a C-node. This will allow a
    C-node to receive messages using an asynchronous event loop.

Next step is to add a ei_send() function that would write to a supplied buffer.
