Oh well... yet another feature slowing down a critical path.

I suggest we group the two bits of a file (close_on_exec, close_on_fork) together,
so that we do not have to dirty two separate cache lines.

Otherwise we will add yet another cache line miss at every file opening/closing for processes
with big file tables.

Ie having a _single_ bitmap array, even bit for close_on_exec, odd bit for close_on_fork

static inline void __set_close_on_exec(unsigned int fd, struct fdtable *fdt)
{
__set_bit(fd * 2, fdt->close_on_fork_exec);
}

static inline void __set_close_on_fork(unsigned int fd, struct fdtable *fdt)
{
__set_bit(fd * 2 + 1, fdt->close_on_fork_exec);
}

Also the F_GETFD/F_SETFD implementation must use a single function call,
to not acquire the spinlock twice.
