fuse: limit queued background requests



Libfuse basically creates a new thread for each new request.  This is fine for
synchronous requests, which are naturally limited.  However background
requests (especially writepage) can cause a thread creation storm.

To avoid this, limit the number of background requests available to userspace.

This is done by introducing another queue for background requests, and a
counter for the number of "active" requests, which are currently available for
userspace.
