Docs for SERVER-39004: Introduce a quota mechanism for the overflow file

      Description

      Description:

      There is a new server parameter (wiredTigerMaxCacheOverflowSizeGB) and new config option (storage.wiredTiger.engineConfig.maxCacheOverflowFileSizeGB) exposed to control this functionality.

      Engineering Ticket Description:

      We don't currently have a quota mechanism to prevent WiredTigerLAS.wt from growing and eventually running out of disk space.

      It would help to have such a configuration in place so that once a file reaches a configured size, we reboot mongod process, which will effectively clean up the WiredTigerLAS.wt file
