ANDROID: binder: Add thread->process_todo flag.

This flag determines whether the thread should currently
process the work in the thread->todo worklist.

The prime usecase for this is improving the performance
of synchronous transactions: all synchronous transactions
post a BR_TRANSACTION_COMPLETE to the calling thread,
but there's no reason to return that command to userspace
right away - userspace anyway needs to wait for the reply.

Likewise, a synchronous transaction that contains a binder
object can cause a BC_ACQUIRE/BC_INCREFS to be returned to
userspace; since the caller must anyway hold a strong/weak
ref for the duration of the call, postponing these commands
until the reply comes in is not a problem.

Note that this flag is not used to determine whether a
thread can handle process work; a thread should never pick
up process work when thread work is still pending.
