gc: config option for running --auto in background
`gc --auto` takes time and can block the user temporarily (but not any less annoyingly). Make it run in background on systems that support it. The only thing lost with running in background is printouts. But gc output is not really interesting. You can keep it in foreground by changing gc.autodetach.
