[Developers] New schedule modes global_early etc.

I just added new schedule modes meta_early, meta_late, global_early, and global_late.

These modes can then be used in Carpet.  Carpet does not yet use these modes, and will ignore these specifications at the moment.

These modes will simplify traversing the schedule tree when local, level, and global mode routines are mixed.  For example, when the atmosphere in a neutron star simulation should be set depending on the maximum density, one can then first schedule a global mode routine (calculating the maximum density), and then a local mode routine (modifying the atmosphere).  Without global_early, it is difficult to ensure the order between these two steps.
