The current notion of an active vnode is eliminated.
Vnodes transition between 0<->1 hold counts all the time and the
associated traversal between different lists induces significant
scalability problems in certain workloads.
Introduce a global list containing all allocated vnodes. They get
unlinked only when UMA reclaims memory and are only requeued when
use hold count reaches 0.
