Subject[RFC v17][PATCH 32/60] c/r: introduce '->checkpoint()' method in 'struct file_operations'
Date
While we assume all normal files and directories can be checkpointed,
there are, as usual in the VFS, specialized places that will always
need an ability to override these defaults. Although we could do this
completely in the checkpoint code, that would bitrot quickly.

This adds a new 'file_operations' function for checkpointing a file.
It is assumed that there should be a dirt-simple way to make something
(un)checkpointable that fits in with current code.

As you can see in the ext[234] patches down the road, all that we have
to do to make something simple be supported is add a single "generic"
f_op entry.

Also introduce vfs_fcntl() so that it can be called from restart (see
patch adding restart of files).

Changelog[v17]
- Forward-declare 'ckpt_ctx' et-al, don't use checkpoint_types.h
