Check channel availability

This application will check to see if any of the specified channels are
available. The following variables will be set by this application:
  ${AVAILCHAN}     - the name of the available channel, if one exists
  ${AVAILORIGCHAN} - the canonical channel name that was used to create the
  ${AVAILSTATUS}   - the status code for the available channel
    s - Consider the channel unavailable if the channel is in use at all
    j - Support jumping to priority n+101 if no channel is available

Use chanisavail to check if one or both phones is busy - if either is busy,
redirect to voicemail/busy/whatever.
