    tdb: consolidate tdb allocation code - re-use dead records at hash top.
    When in tdb_store we re-use a dead record reactivated from the
    target hash chain itself, we currently leave it in its place in
    the chain. When we re-use a dead record from a different chain or
    from the freelist instead, we insert it at the beginning of the
    target chain.
    This patch changes the behaviour to always newly store a
    record at the beginning of the hash chain. This removes
    a special case and hence simplifies the allocation code.
    On the other hand side, it introduces two additioal tdb_ofs_write
    calls for the in-chain-case.
    Note the subtelty of the patch that by moving the case of the candidate
    record's chain as new case "i=0" into the for loop, we also reverse the
    order of the two steps in the for-loop body (non blocking freelist alloc
    and searching for dead record in a chain) in order to keep the overall
    order of execution identical.
