Nikolay reported a problem where generic/371 would fail sometimes with a
slow drive.  The gist of the test is that we fallocate a file in
parallel with a pwrite of a different file.  These two files combined
are smaller than the file system, but sometimes the pwrite would ENOSPC.

A fair bit of investigation uncovered the fact that the fallocate
workload was racing in and grabbing the free space that the pwrite
workload was trying to free up so it could make its own reservation.
After a few loops of this eventually the pwrite workload would error out
with an ENOSPC.

We've had the same problem with metadata as well, and we serialized all
metadata allocations to satisfy this problem.  This wasn't usually a
problem with data because data reservations are more straightforward,
but obviously could still happen.

Fix this by not allowing reservations to occur if there are any pending
tickets waiting to be satisfied on the space info.
