kern.maxvnodes: 26474 -> 65536

Ok, the number of vnodes was a bit on the small size.

    $ time du -a /usr/pkgsrc/ | wc
       47292   94584 1959522

    real    0m7.897s
    user    0m0.457s
    sys     0m0.752s

It appears I have ~47k files and directories, and 64k vnodes.  I'm
still seeing ~8 seconds to traverse the filesystem with the disk
access light on for all 8 seconds.
