ETCD db size based compaction

See Gist for a background job that compacts+defrags etcd when the db grew too big, either because the api server was not doing it’s job or the db grew too quickly.

If this happens often you should consider growing the db size or fixing the api in some other way … also add some reporting so you are aware of the compactions since they can interrupt users queries.
