Adding code to constrain Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV)
This code constrains Lorentz Invariance Violation using GW signals and is a part of the regular analyses, being one of the tests of GR performed on GW signals. In principle, this can be run on any frequency domain waveform.

Backwards Incompatible Changes
- This change modifies an existing API
- This change removes an existing API
This code has been re-reviewed by Stas Babak for porting to master as it was earlier based on a lalinference_o2 based branch, the review statement is here: https://wiki.ligo.org/CBC/TestingGR/LIV_Reruns_For_Porting .
The code had been extensively reviewed during O2 (also by Stas), the main project page being here: https://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/ligovirgo/cbcnote/TestingGR/O1/LorentzInvarianceViolation , the main review wiki is here: https://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/ligovirgo/cbcnote/TestingGR/O1/LorentzInvarianceViolation/Review .
