    afs: Add AFS_USPC_SHUTDOWN bkg request
    When AFS_NEW_BKG was added, the kernel module indicated to the
    relevant afsd process that it's time to shutdown by returning -2. This
    works on DARWIN, but it's difficult to make this work on all
    platforms, because of the different way that platforms handle error
    codes from our pioctls and other AFS syscalls.
    Specifically, on LINUX, negative error codes are assumed to be
    negative errno codes, and so returning -2 from the syscall handler
    means we return -1 to userspace, with errno set to 2 (ENOENT).
    Getting this to work consistently across platforms is probably more
    trouble than its worth, so instead of relying on specific return codes
    from the syscall, just add a new background daemon operation called
    AFS_USPC_SHUTDOWN, which just tells the background daemon to exit.
