Defines functions sva.check

Documented in sva.check

#' A function for post-hoc checking of an sva object to check for
#' degenerate cases. 
#' 
#' This function is designed to check for degenerate cases in the
#' sva fit and fix the sva object where possible. 
#' 
#' \code{\link{empirical.controls}} for a direct estimate of the empirical controls. 
#' 
#' @param svaobj The transformed data matrix with the variables in rows and samples in columns
#' @param dat The data set that was used to build the surrogate variables
#' @param mod The model matrix being used to fit the data
#' @param mod0 The null model matrix being used to fit the data
#' 
#' @return sv The estimated surrogate variables, one in each column
#' @return pprob.gam: A vector of the posterior probabilities each gene is affected by heterogeneity
#' @return pprob.b A vector of the posterior probabilities each gene is affected by mod
#' @return n.sv The number of significant surrogate variables
