Subject: Alarm handler 
Rob thought it would be nice to have some alarms on the cpu loads and FE syncs.
I added all these channels to the alarm handler config file and wrote a script
which would set their values (HIHI,HIGH etc).

Ezcawrite allowed me to set the alarm levels (and ezcaread would give the correct
value) but no matter what I set the value to the alarm wouldn't sound.

After experimenting with a few other channels it appears that the alarm handler will
not show alarms if the alarm levels are absent from the db file (even though ezca
gives a value).

I edited the following files so we can have alarms on the cpus.

In c1iscepics:
lsc40m.db
asc40m1.db

In c1losepics:
bs.db
etmx.db
etmy.db
itmx.db
itmy.db
mc1.db
mc2.db
mc3.db
prm.db
srm.db

I saved backups in the appropriate folders.

Next time we have a bootfest please also do c1iscepics and c1losepics so these changes
will be implemented.
