We start a process that runs fsstress, then kill the process, wait for it
to die and then end the test, where we attempt to unmount the fs which
often fails because the fsstress subcommand started by the process is
still running and using the mount point. This results in a test failure:

  btrfs/232 1s ... umount: /home/fdmanana/btrfs-tests/scratch_1: target is busy.
  _check_btrfs_filesystem: filesystem on /dev/sdc is inconsistent
  (see /home/fdmanana/git/hub/xfstests/results//btrfs/232.full for details)

Fix that by adding a trap to the writer() function.
