[PATCH 1/4] block/nbd: fix drain dead-lock because of nbd reconnect-dela

We pause reconnect process during drained section. So, if we have some
requests, waiting for reconnect we should cancel them, otherwise they
deadlock the drained section.

How to reproduce:

1. Create an image:
   qemu-img create -f qcow2 xx 100M

2. Start NBD server:
   qemu-nbd xx

3. Start vm with second nbd disk on node2, like this:

  ./build/x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -nodefaults -drive \
     file=/work/images/cent7.qcow2 -drive \
     -vnc :0 -m 2G -enable-kvm -vga std

4. Access the vm through vnc (or some other way?), and check that NBD
   drive works:

   dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/null bs=1M count=10

   - the command should succeed.

5. Now, kill the nbd server, and run dd in the guest again:

   dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/null bs=1M count=10

Now Qemu is trying to reconnect, and dd-generated requests are waiting
for the connection (they will wait up to 60 seconds (see
reconnect-delay option above) and than fail). But suddenly, vm may
totally hang in the deadlock. You may need to increase reconnect-delay
period to catch the dead-lock.

VM doesn't respond because drain dead-lock happens in cpu thread with
global mutex taken. That's not good thing by itself and is not fixed
by this commit (true way is using iothreads). Still this commit fixes
drain dead-lock itself.

Note: probably, we can instead continue to reconnect during drained
section. To achieve this, we may move negotiation to the connect thread
to make it independent of bs aio context. But expanding drained section
doesn't seem good anyway. So, let's now fix the bug the simplest way.
