    Subject[RFC v7][PATCH 1/9] Create syscalls: sys_checkpoint, sys_restart
    Date
    Create trivial sys_checkpoint and sys_restore system calls. They will
    enable to checkpoint and restart an entire container, to and from a
    checkpoint image file descriptor.

    The syscalls take a file descriptor (for the image file) and flags as
    arguments. For sys_checkpoint the first argument identifies the target
    container; for sys_restart it will identify the checkpoint image.
