Robocode 1.5.4 - fixes the CPU calculation


- The CPU constant was way too little compared to version 1.4.9. This is a critical bug when Robocode is used for competitions. Now the CPU calculation has been improved, where a heavy math benchmark has been adopted from Robert D. Maupin (AKA Chase-san).

- The method for determining if a robot has exceeded it's CPU time limit has been improved to use nano second precision, to get rid of an issue with millisecond granularity. This method was created by Julian Kent (AKA Skilgannon).
