A thread should only be counted as idle when it really is waiting for new
requests. Without this patch, sometimes too few threads are started as busy
threads are counted as idle.

Not sure if it makes a difference in practice outside some artificial
qemu-io/qemu-img tests, but I think the change makes sense in any case.
