Start implementing queue state updates using fcmpset loops.


Start implementing queue state updates using fcmpset loops.

This is in preparation for eliminating the use of the vm_page lock for
protecting queue state operations.

Introduce the vm_page_pqstate_commit_*() functions. These functions act
as helpers around vm_page_astate_fcmpset() and are specialized for
specific types of operations. vm_page_pqstate_commit() wraps these

Convert a number of routines to use these new helpers. Use
vm_page_release_toq() in vm_page_unwire() and vm_page_release() to
atomically release a wiring reference and release the page into a queue.
This has the side effect that vm_page_unwire() will leave the page in
the active queue if it is already present there.

Convert the page queue scans to use the new helpers. Simplify
vm_pageout_reinsert_inactive(), which requeues pages that were found to
be busy during an inactive queue scan, to avoid duplicating the work of
vm_pqbatch_process_page(). In particular, if PGA_REQUEUE or
PGA_REQUEUE_HEAD is set, let that be handled during batch processing.
