Release cs_main during InvalidateBlock iterations

Description

Release cs_main during InvalidateBlock iterations

Summary:
This PR makes a number of improvements to the InvalidateBlock (invalidateblock RPC) and RewindBlockIndex functions, primarily around breaking up their long-term cs_main holding. In addition:

  • They're made safely interruptible (bitcoind can be shutdown, and no progress in either will be lost, though if incomplete, invalidateblock won't continue after restart and will need to be called again)
  • The validation queue is prevented from overflowing (meaning invalidateblock on a very old block will not drive bitcoind OOM) (see #14289).
  • invalidateblock won't bother to move transactions back into the mempool after 10 blocks (optimization).

Partial Backport of Bitcoin Core PR15402 (commit 241b2c7):

Release cs_main during InvalidateBlock iterations

Depends on D4758

Test Plan:

  1. Build with Clang in Debug mode:
CXX=clang++ CC=clang cmake .. -D CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-Werror=thread-safety-analysis" -GNinja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
ninja check-all
  1. Verify that the compiler has not emitted a thread-safety warning.
  2. Run the node: ./src/bitcoind -regtest
  3. Verify that text similar to "Assertion failed: lock ... not held ..." is not printed on stderr.
