No, the only reason for this wapbl_begin is the copy-on-write for
snapshots where the block allocation has to be enclosed in wapbl_begin.

Because snapshots will not do copy-on-write for the pagedaemon and return
an error instead.
Still thinking that the wapbl design decision to use an exclusive lock
is wrong and a producer-consumer model would be moreappropriate...
