Commit message:

Do not let vm_daemon run unbounded.

On a load where single anonymous object consumes almost all memory on
the large system, swapout code executes the iteration over the
corresponding object page queue for long time, owning the map and
object locks. This blocks pagedaemon which tries to lock the object,
and blocks other threads in the process in vm_fault() waiting for the
map lock.

Handle the issue by terminating the deactivation loop if we executed
too long and by yielding at the top level in vm_daemon.
