run-command: optionally kill children on exit
When we spawn a helper process, it should generally be done and finish_command called before we exit. However, if we exit abnormally due to an early return or a signal, the helper may continue to run in our absence. In the best case, this may simply be wasted CPU cycles or a few stray messages on a terminal. But it could also mean a process that the user thought was aborted continues to run to completion (e.g., a push's pack-objects helper will complete the push, even though you killed the push process). This patch provides infrastructure for run-command to keep track of PIDs to be killed, and clean them on signal reception or input, just as we do with tempfiles. PIDs can be added in two ways: 1. If NO_PTHREADS is defined, async helper processes are automatically marked. By definition this code must be ready to die when the parent dies, since it may be implemented as a thread of the parent process. 2. If the run-command caller specifies the "clean_on_exit" option. This is not the default, as there are cases where it is OK for the child to outlive us (e.g., when spawning a pager). PIDs are cleared from the kill-list automatically during wait_or_whine, which is called from finish_command and finish_async.
