    kernel - Fix deadlock in vm_page_repurpose()
    * vm_page_repurpose() was hard+soft busying the underlying VM page,
      which can deadlock against putpages or other I/O.
    * Only hard-busy the page, then add an SBUSY test to the failure case
      (we don't want to repurpose a page undergoing I/O after all!).
