Add new task state: cancel_requested
++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bugzilla Bug #1094523 ++
Description of problem:
I think it would be a worthwhile enhancement to distinguish between cancel_requested and canceled. The REST API could mark a task as cancel_requested, and once the worker successfully handles the request it can mark the task as canceled.
This would be handy for the CLI. The CLI currently exits immediately when polling tasks upon noticing that they are canceled. It could instead mark that the task has been requested to cancel, and wait to exit until it is actually exited. This would allow it to print the final progress report if there is one.
This would have aided in discovering the problem in #1082802, wherein it was found that cancellation was ignored.

- Platform Release set to 3.0.0
- Sprint Candidate changed from No to Yes
This would be great to fix with Pulp 3 so I'll mark it with that target release. We can remove that if we decide not to, but I think it would be easy to do this and would remove some ambiguity.

- Subject changed from [RFE] Add new task state: cancel_requested to Add new task state: cancel_requested
When we switch to an exit-immediately behavior upon cancel there will be almost no delay in between a cancel being requested and the task from stopping. Formally it's still probably right to introduce a cancel_requested and then a final cancel state. Just an FYI on how that other change will affect the usefulness of this one.
