Subject[PATCH 3/6] shm: add memfd_create() syscall
Date
memfd_create() is similar to mmap(MAP_ANON), but returns a file-descriptor
that you can pass to mmap(). It explicitly allows sealing and
avoids any connection to user-visible mount-points. Thus, it's not
subject to quotas on mounted file-systems, but can be used like
malloc()'ed memory, but with a file-descriptor to it.

memfd_create() does not create a front-FD, but instead returns the raw
shmem file, so calls like ftruncate() can be used. Also calls like fstat()
will return proper information and mark the file as regular file. Sealing
is explicitly supported on memfds.

Compared to O_TMPFILE, it does not require a tmpfs mount-point and is not
subject to quotas and alike.
