Finding aggregate coverage for a set of test files means running each
afl-generated test case through the harness.  At the moment, this is
done by re-executing afl-harness-cov with each input file.  When a
large number of test cases have been generated, this can take a
significant amonut of time; a recent test with 30k total files
generated by 4 parallel fuzzers took over 7 minutes.

The vast majority of this time is taken up with 'exec', however.
Since the harness is already designed to loop over multiple inputs for
llvm "persistent mode", just allow it to take a large number of inputs
on the same when *not* running in llvm "persistent mode"..  Then the
command can be efficiently executed like this:

  ls */queue/id* | xargs $path/afl-harness-cov

For the above-mentioned test on 30k files, the time to generate
coverage data was reduced from 7 minutes to under 30 seconds.

v4:
- Fix printf to print the right filename
v3:
- Combine some variable declarations
- Make sure that count is set only once no matter how it's compiled
v2:
- Make check for batch processing more clear

Jan: I took the liberty of retaining your Ack on this, since it was a
simple and obvious fix (which I think you had also suggested).

     $ make afl-cov #produces afl-harness-cov
 
+In order to speed up the process of checking total coverage,
+`afl-harness-cov` can take several test inputs on its command-line;
+the speed-up effect should be similar to that of using afl-clang-fast.
+You can use xargs to do this most efficiently, like so:
+
+    $ ls queue/id* | xargs $path/afl-harness-cov

 NOTE: Please also note that the coverage instrumentation hard-codes
 the absolute path for the instrumentation read and write files in the
 binary; so coverage data will always show up in the build directory no
