patch for SSA name management

This patch changes SSA name freelist management to keep the freelist sorted
and at flush_ssaname_freelist shrink num_ssa_names as much as possible.

The goal is to make used SSA names as dense as possible.

Does this patch fix the Coremark regression by chance?  (I'll note that a
proper fix would change the important coalesce cost so it is carried out
regardless of SSA name order).
