auth: Handle a signing pipe worker dying with work still pending #5777

Short description

The current code detects that the corresponding pipe has been closed, but has no way to know if we were still expecting something from this worker or if this is a "normal" exit. This leads to d_outstanding not being decreased if we expected an answer from the dying worker, meaning we will wait forever for the result.
This patch keeps track of the number of answers we are expecting from each worker, treating a worker exiting while we still expect some answer from its end as an error.
It also move to the use of std::thread to get rid of the temporary allocated struct used to pass parameters to the new thread.
