    kernel - Add vfs.repurpose_enable, adjust B_HASBOGUS
    * Add vfs.repurpose_enable, default disabled.  If this feature is turned on
      the system will try to repurpose the VM pages underlying a buffer on
      re-use instead of allowing the VM pages to cycle into the VM page cache.
      Designed for high I/O-load environments.
    * Use the B_HASBOGUS flag to determine if a pmap_qenter() is required,
      and devolve the case to a single call to pmap_qenter() instead of one
      for each bogus page.
