[slime-devel] Output lost after disconnect reconnect

After a disconnect, reconnect long running worker threads that were 
spawn for instance by C-x C-e in a lisp buffer send their output to the 

Detailed process to reproduce:
1. start an sbcl
2. (require 'asdf)
    (asdf:oos 'asdf:load-op 'swank)
    (setq swank:*globally-redirect-io* t)
    (setq swank:*global-debugger* t)
    (setf swank:*use-dedicated-output-stream* nil)
    (swank:create-server :dont-close t :port 4007)
3. connect from slime
4. from a buffer eval
   (sleep 5)
   (print 'hello *trace-output*)
   (force-output *trace-output*))
5. disconnect
[At this point output should be going to the terminal where sbcl was 
started which is the case when the above snippet is wrapped in 
(sb-thread:make-thread (lambda () ...))). Instead it goes to nowhere.]
6. slime-connect again
7. observe that nobody says hello anymore

The attached patch aims to fix this by:
	* swank.lisp (maybe-call-with-io-redirection): don't
	lost output after disconnect, reconnect.
