coroutine: add ./configure --disable-coroutine-pool

The 'gthread' coroutine backend was written before the freelist (aka
pool) existed in qemu-coroutine.c.

This means that every thread is expected to exit when its coroutine
terminates.  It is not possible to reuse threads from a pool.

This patch automatically disables the pool when 'gthread' is used.  This
allows the 'gthread' backend to work again (for example,
tests/test-coroutine completes successfully instead of hanging).

I considered implementing thread reuse but I don't want quirks like CPU
affinity differences due to coroutine threads being recycled.  The
'gthread' backend is a reference backend and it's therefore okay to skip
the pool optimization.

Note this patch also makes it easy to toggle the pool for benchmarking
purposes:

  ./configure --with-coroutine-backend=ucontext \
              --disable-coroutine-pool
