  For low memory situations, non-VMIO buffers didnt't release pages back to
  the system when brelse() was called with B_RELBUF set on the buffer.  This
  could be a problem when the system was low on memory, had many buffers on
  QUEUE_EMPTYKVA and started to traverse directories.  For each getnewbuf(),
  pages were allocated from the system, driving the free reserve downwards.
  For each brelse(), the system put the buffer on QUEUE_CLEAN, with B_INVAL
  This commit changes the semantics of B_RELBUF to also free pages from
  non-VMIO buffers.
