  Improve get_pv_entry()'s handling of low-memory conditions.  After page
  allocation fails and pv entries are reclaimed, there may be an unused pv
  entry in a pv chunk that survived the reclamation.  However, previously,
  after reclamation, get_pv_entry() did not look for an unused pv entry in
  a surviving pv chunk; it simply retried the page allocation.  Now, it
  does look for an unused pv entry before retrying the page allocation.
  Note: This only applies to RELENG_7.  Earlier branches use a different
  pv entry allocator.
