As part of the work for OS-6602 we noticed that even if an inactive spare was emitting errors they would not be handled by the ZFS retire agent.

It turns out that the retire agent would only iterate through the normal vdev tree and the list of l2arc devices in a given pool when searching for the vdev suspect identified by the ZFS diagnosis module.
