elgg_list_entities does COUNT queries when pagination off #9403

The current views (lists and pagination) will handle passing a null in for count in this case, but plugins may have overridden these views and expect count to be present. In 3.0 we could warn devs that these views may receive a null count.

IMO, we should move away from this pattern:

$options['count'] = true;
$count = elgg_get_entities($options);
$options['count'] = false;
$entities = elgg_get_entities($options);
// then somewhere down the pipe 'count' becomes $count in $vars
$vars = $options;
$vars['count'] = $count;
