max_background just throttles the number of background requests that
the userspace filesystem can *unqueue*. It doesn't affect queuing in
any way.

The wait is for posix locks to get unlocked. But "remote" posix locks
are almost never used due to problems like this, so I think it's safe
to do this.

Filesystems might expect not just he inode to not be destroyed but
also the file, so do what other file operations do, keep a ref on ff:

fuse_file_put(fa->ff, false, false);

fa->ff = fuse_file_get(ff);
