Developers need to be able to determine whether their code is being run by a user or during cron. Potential use cases are error logging/notification, node access permissions, calculation iterations, and probably many more. Here is a specific need in Domain Access: #1851400: Node grants are incorrect during cron runs potentially causing a fatal exception in Entity->save().

This patch creates a global in, then sets it to TRUE during the cron runs.
