The test fails sporadically when trying to unmount the scratch filesystem
because a filefrag process is still running against a file that exists on
the scrach filesystem. This is because killing the subshell running the
fiemap_work() function does not wait for any filefrag process to complete
first. We need to set a trap for the SIGTERM signal on the subshell so
that it waits for any filefrag process before exitting.

The failure resulted in error messages like the following:

  btrfs/079 57s ... umount: /home/fdmanana/btrfs-tests/scratch_1: target is busy
          (In some cases useful info about processes that
           use the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1).)
  _check_btrfs_filesystem: filesystem on /dev/sdc is inconsistent
  (see /home/fdmanana/git/hub/xfstests/results//btrfs/079.full for details)

Fix this by adding a trap for SIGTERM.
