Add cancelAllRequests API #2890

Issue Link 馃敆

While there's no specific request, this is a question that comes up every so often, so it makes sense to add an API for it.

Goals 鈿斤笍

This PR adds a cancelAllRequests method to Session, which cancels all currently in flight Requests. It's a more limited version of a similar API on URLSession, in that it does't block additional Requests from being made while cancellation is occurring.

Implementation Details 馃毀

This PR adds var activeRequests: Set<Request> to Session, and Requests are added when created and removed when they run cleanup() after running the response serializers.

This PR also adds a workaround for the apparent fact that URLSessionTasks which are never resumed will never return URLSessionTaskMetrics. Given this is an important event for Alamofire to see, we now always call resume() on tasks before calling cancel(). This appears to guarantee metrics will always be generated for the task. However, on the 2019 OSes, as of beta 5, this is not 100% reliable in Alamofire, resulting in about 1 failure per 25,000 cancellations, at least according to my tests. Previous OS versions are 100% reliable, so I've reported this as a bug (FB6789976).

Testing Details 馃攳

I've added tests for cancelling 100 auto resumed and non resumed Requests, as well as a retry scenario. Let me know if any other scenarios are needed.
