[PATCH 02/10] Add a BAN_Shutdown() routine that is called before STV_Close(), and makes sure that the ban lists will not change until we exit.

I'm not happy with this one, it risks creating a pile-up of workers
which are trying to add bans's from VCL, and it does not shut down
the lurker in any meaningful way.

Add a private flag in cache_ban.c which indicates that a shutdown
is in progress, set it in the BAN_Shutdown() function.

When this flag is set, all attempts to add bans should fail before
trying to grab the mutex.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
