Here's an updated FSM patch. Changes since last patch:

- Per comments and discussion with Simon, I've changed the "bubble up" 
behavior so that when a bottom-level page is updated, if the amount of 
free space was decreased, the change is not immediately bubbled up to 
upper page. Instead, searchers that traverse down the tree will update 
the upper pages when they see that they're out of sync. This should 
alleviate the worry that we need to keep a bottom-level page exclusively 
locked across I/O.

- Page-level routines have been split to a separate file fsmpage.c. 
While there isn't that much code in it, it makes the separation between 
functions that operate on a single page and functions that operate 
across pages more clear.

- Fixed some minor bugs.
