So far "stop" button was available only during the single-threaded
searches. In order to make the multi-threaded searches stoppable
and restartable we are changing the searching mechanism making all
searching threads to progress in the data in parallel.

 Changes is v2:
 - Fix of the deadlock in the multi-threaded searche that occurs when
   the total number of entries is exactly multiple of the number of
   entries to be searched before updating the progress bar.

This patch defines two identical private methods for single-threaded
and multi-threaded search inside the data table. This is done as a
preparation for the following patch that will change the mechanism
of the multi-threaded search.

We switch from classical Map-Reduce approach in which the data is
divided in sub-sets and each thread searches into its own sub-set
to a solution in which all thread are progressing in the data in
parallel. Note that the Map-Reduce solution is more efficient
because at the end when we merge the searching results we simply
have to append the outputs of the threads, while in the case of
a parallel search we hare to also sort the merged outputs of the
threads. However, the parallel search allows the user to stop and
later restart the search at any time. The GUI buttons, needed to
stop and restart the multi-threaded search will be enabled in the
following patch.

So far the button was showing up only when we do a single-threaded
search in the data. Stopping the multi-threaded searches became
possible after the modification of the parallel search introduced
in the previous commit. When the multi-threaded search is restarted
(after being stopped) the label showing the number of matches found
is reset to show nothing. It will show the count again when the
search finishes or is stopped.

I'll pull this in as-is, but the above should definitely have comments
stating one is "Single threaded" and the other is  "Multi threaded",
otherwise who would know what they mean?

I'm pulling in this series. But more of an FYI, it's best to avoid
statements like "previous commit" because when developing with git, it may
not be a previous commit, when it goes into a tree. Especially if a commit
gets cherry-picked. 

Instead, use phrases like "With the parallel search changes that
were made, it is now possible to stop the multi-threaded searches and still
be at the correct percentage of the search that is displayed to the user".

It is frowned upon to mention "this commit" or "last commit" in change
logs. I catch myself doing it once in a while, and try to conform as
well ;-)
