Jonas Hahnfeld reported a bug in shutdown in the presence of tasking.

This change fixes a race in shutdown code when threads are being reaped.  Threads spinning in fork barrier and searching for tasks to steal may identify other threads as potential victims to steal from.  The other threads may have already been reaped.

The fix creates a simple flag on the threads that lets them indicate that they are in a reapable state when shutdown is happening.  The shutdown code then forces any threads out of the fork barrier and then waits until all the threads are reapable, before reaping any of them.
