New flag +RTS -qi<n>, avoid waking up idle Capabilities to do parallel GC
This is an experimental tweak to the parallel GC that avoids waking up a Capability to do parallel GC if we know that the capability has been idle for a (tunable) number of GC cycles. The idea is that if you're only using a few Capabilities, there's no point waking up the ones that aren't busy. e.g. +RTS -qi3 says "A Capability will participate in parallel GC if it was running at all since the last 3 GC cycles." Results are a bit hit and miss, and I don't completely understand why yet. Hence, for now it is turned off by default, and also not documented except in the +RTS -? output.
