#1796: Include IllinoisGRMHD into the Toolkit, as an Arrangement

Comment (by Zach Etienne):

 I have just added a magnetized TOV code test to the IllinoisGRMHD/test
 directory. This required adding a new thorn called Seed_Magnetic_Fields. I
 also added a test.ccl file, and verified that the output of make [config
 name]-testsuite on this test yields:

 Success: 21 files identical

 Note that this test merely provides a sanity check. In other words,
 IllinoisGRMHD passing this code test is a necessary but not sufficient
 condition for acceptance of any IllinoisGRMHD patch; contact me (Zach) for
 details on the more robust set of tests that must be applied to any
 IllinoisGRMHD patch that might conceivably result in beyond-roundoff
 differences to the original version. Our #1 goal is to ensure roundoff-
 error identity with the original IllinoisGRMHD. Otherwise we risk getting
 the science wrong.

 Frank: Please review the new Seed_Magnetic_Fields at your earliest
 convenience; it's only 51 lines, not including the .ccl files.
