Don't start grouptaskqueue threads for unused grouptaskqueues

Authored by kmacy on Aug 28 2017, 2:19 AM.



Defer starting grouptaskqueue threads until the first time a grouptask is associated with the group.

This keeps iflib from cluttering ddb ps when there are no iflib drivers in the system.

@shurd does this still work or should it be abandoned?

May as well abandon it until/unless there's interest. I don't think there's much gain for the added complexity.
