  zfs arc_reclaim_thread: no need to call arc_reclaim_needed when
  resetting needfree
  needfree is checked at the very start of arc_reclaim_needed.
  This change makes code easier to follow and maintain in face of
  potential changed in arc_reclaim_needed.
  Also, put the whole sub-block under _KERNEL because needfree can be set
  only in kernel code.
  To do: rename needfree to something else to aovid confusion with
  OpenSolaris global variable of the same name which is used in the same
  code, but has different meaning (page deficit).
  Note: I have an impression that locking around accesses to this variable
  as well as mutual notifications between arc_reclaim_thread and
  arc_lowmem are not proper.
