HAMMER - Fix lost inode issue (primarily with nohistory mounts)
* When a HAMMER cursor is unlocked it becomes tracked and unrelated
B-Tree operations will cause the tracked cursor's nodes and indices
to be updated. The cursor structure also has a leaf element pointer
which was not being properly updated. This could lead to panics and
Properly adjust the leaf element pointer in tracked cursors.
* The bug primarily occurs with nohistory mounts or nohistory sub-trees
due to the larger number of physical deletions made to the B-Tree, but
could also occur (rarely) with normal mounts.
* Add additional assertions to catch any further occurrences (though I
think all the cases have been covered now).
* Add a new sysctl vfs.hammer.error_panic which can be set to e.g. 9 to
cause critical errors to panic immediately instead of returning
through the call stack, making debugging possible.
