Subject: [PATCH v6 09/11] fs/pipe.c: export create_pipe_files() and replace_fd()

Exported create_pipe_files() and replace_fd() because the SGX driver
needs to be able to setup pipes in order to communicate with the helper
process that hosts the Launch Enclave (LE). The pipe creation will be
done in the init-callback supplied to call_usermodehelper_setup().

The driver will use two pipes for communication with the LE hosting

* One for writing SIGSTRUCT blobs.
* One for reading EINITTOKEN blobs.
