Stop Loading in Background on Android

On Android, task loading in blink scheduler and resource fetching will be stopped (100% throttled) when a renderer has run in the background for more than five minutes. This will lower consumption of non-trivial CPU time and network bandwidth, improve the responsiveness of the foreground app, and conserve battery.
