Subject[RFC v6][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.

+ Application checkpoint/restart is the ability to save the
+ state of a running application so that it can later resume
+ its execution from the time at which it was checkpointed.
+
+ Turning this option on will enable checkpoint and restart
