[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] Need to limit threads based on available memory and address space (#804)

Originally reported at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1729382 but filing here for discussion and release tracking - this is a release blocker issue.

Short summary is that the new threaded build code can easily run out of memory doing file compression, causing previously working builds to semi-reproducably fail for no good reason. This can happen on any system given sufficiently large number of sub-packages and lowish memory, but on 32bit platforms the address space is the primary limiting factor.
