loader: rewrite zfs vdev initialization
In some cases the pool discovery will get stuck in infinite loop while setting up the vdev children.
To fix, we split the vdev setup into two parts, first we create vdevs based on configuration we do get from pool label, then, we process pool config from MOS and update the pool config if needed.
Testing done: confirm previously hung loader is not hung any more.

Tested on an Ivy Bridge system with a single SSD vdev and the BIOS bootloader. The controller has a storage pool as well as a root pool, spanning over the chipset's AHCI controller and an LSI2008 based controller.
Prior to this fix, the first stage of the bootloader (gptzfsboot) would hang in an infinite loop while enumerating the tail queue of vdevs. After this fix, it boots.
