Implement a safe memory reclamation feature that is tightly coupled with UMA.
This is in the same family of algorithms as Epoch/QSBR/RCU/PARSEC but is a unique algorithm. This has 3x the performance of epoch in a write heavy workload with less than half of the read side cost. The memory overhead is significantly lessened by limiting the free-to-use latency. A synthetic test uses 1/20th of the memory vs Epoch. There is significant further discussion in the comments and code review. This code should be considered experimental. I will write a man page after it has settled. After further validation the VM will begin using this feature to permit lockless page lookups. Both markj and cperciva tested on arm64 at large core counts to verify fences on weaker ordering architectures. I will commit a stress testing tool in a follow-up.
