Subject: [PATCH, RFC 1/3] fs: add new open flags O_HOT and O_COLD

The O_HOT and O_COLD flag are hints to the file system that the file
is going to be frequently accessed (a "hot" file) and or very
infrequently accessed (a "cold" file).  It is up the file system to
decide how these flags should be interpreted; in some cases, such as
O_HOT, the file system may require appropriate privileges or implement
check some kind of per-user quota before deciding to honor the flag.
