[tor-dev] Have the Tor daemon use more cores

I've been working on the volunteer project described here
but can't spend much more time on it.
Right now, I have refactored circuit_receive_relay_cell() in relay.c
(which calls relay_crypt() and eventually the AES crypt routines) to use
the workqueue.c infrastructure similar to cpuworker.c.
When the refactored code runs in single threaded mode, all seems good.
Once I activate the thread pool and start sending it work with
threadpool_queue_work(), it Bootstraps 100% okay and runs for several
minutes before crashing on cells it doesn't handle properly.
I'm happy to share my code with anyone interested.
