Subject[PATCH v2 2/3] 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 can support 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. If you
want sealing, you can specify MFD_ALLOW_SEALING. Otherwise, sealing is not
support (like on all other regular files).

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