net/ceph: make ceph_msgr_wq non-reentrant

ceph messenger code does a rather complex dancing around multithread
workqueue to make sure the same work item isn't executed concurrently
on different CPUs.  This restriction can be provided by workqueue with

Make ceph_msgr_wq non-reentrant workqueue with the default concurrency
level and remove the QUEUED/BUSY logic.

* This removes backoff handling in con_work() but it couldn't reliably
  block execution of con_work() to begin with - queue_con() can be
  called after the work started but before BUSY is set.  It seems that
  it was an optimization for a rather cold path and can be safely

* The number of concurrent work items is bound by the number of
  connections and connetions are independent from each other.  With
  the default concurrency level, different connections will be
  executed independently.

* There is some trickery going on with QUEUED and BUSY because we
* only want a _single_ thread operating on each connection at any
* point in time, but we want to use all available CPUs.
* The worker thread only proceeds if it can atomically set BUSY. It
* clears QUEUED and does it's thing. When it thinks it's done, it
* clears BUSY, then rechecks QUEUED.. if it's set again, it loops
* (tries again to set BUSY).
* To queue work, we first set QUEUED, _then_ if BUSY isn't set, we
* try to queue work. If that fails (work is already queued, or BUSY)
* we give up (work also already being done or is queued) but leave QUEUED
* set so that the worker thread will loop if necessary.
