Subject: [PATCH v4 0/6] File Sealing & memfd_create()

Hi

This is v4 of the File-Sealing and memfd_create() patches. You can find v1 with
a longer introduction at gmane [1], there's also v2 [2] and v3 [3] available.
See also the article about sealing on LWN [4], and a high-level introduction on
the new API in my blog [5]. Last but not least, man-page proposals are
available in my private repository [6].

This series introduces two new APIs:
  memfd_create(): Think of this syscall as malloc() but it returns a
                  file-descriptor instead of a pointer. That file-descriptor is
                  backed by anon-memory and can be memory-mapped for access.
  sealing: The sealing API can be used to prevent a specific set of operations
           on a file-descriptor. You 'seal' the file and give thus the
           guarantee, that those operations will be rejected from now on.

This series adds the memfd_create(2) syscall only to x86 and x86-64. Patches for
most other architectures are available in my private repository [7]. Missing
architectures are:
    alpha, avr32, blackfin, cris, frv, m32r, microblaze, mn10300, sh, sparc,
    um, xtensa
These architectures lack several newer syscalls, so those should be added first
before adding memfd_create(2). I can provide patches for those, if required.
However, I think it should be kept separate from this series.

Changes in v4:
  - drop page-isolation in favor of shmem_wait_for_pins()
  - add unlikely(info->seals) to write_begin hot-path
  - return EPERM for F_ADD_SEALS if file is not writable
  - moved shmem_wait_for_pins() entirely into it's own commit
  - make O_LARGEFILE mandatory part of memfd_create() ABI
  - add lru_add_drain() to shmem_tag_pins() hot-path
  - minor coding-style changes

Thanks
David
