    HAMMER VFS - Fix assertion when taking snapshot
    * hammer_ioc_add_snapshot() issues an ASOF lookup for the snapshot and
      then a non-ASOF insertion (insertions never use ASOF).  However, the
      ASOF lookup can modify the cursor's key (cursor.key_beg).
      This mismatch between the cursor's key and the leaf being inserted can
      then result in an assertion in the btree insertion code.
    * Reloading the key before doing the insertion fixes the problem.  Also
      document the case.
