Cause: When using mod_proxy_balancer with lbmethod_bybusyness, the "busy" counter was not decreased when the worker tried to send a request to non-working node.

Consequence: Once the non-working node became working again, mod_proxy_balancer did not recover the worker, because the "busy" counter still signalled the worker is busy.

Fix: The "busy" counter is decreased after failed requests.

Result: mod_proxy_balancer uses the worker after the node recovery.
