Userspace has made use of /proc/self/fd very liberally to allow for
descriptors to be re-opened. There are a wide variety of uses for this
feature, but it has always required constructing a pathname and could
not be done without procfs mounted. The obvious solution for this is to
extend openat(2) to have an AT_EMPTY_PATH-equivalent -- O_EMPTYPATH.

Now that descriptor re-opening has been made safe through the new
magic-link resolution restrictions, we can replicate these restrictions
for O_EMPTYPATH. In particular, we only allow "upgrading" the file
descriptor if the corresponding FMODE_PATH_* bit is set (or the
FMODE_{READ,WRITE} cases for non-O_PATH file descriptors).

When doing openat(O_EMPTYPATH|O_PATH), O_PATH takes precedence and
O_EMPTYPATH is ignored. Very few users ever have a need to O_PATH
re-open an existing file descriptor, and so accommodating them at the
expense of further complicating O_PATH makes little sense. Ultimately,
if users ask for this we can always add RESOLVE_EMPTY_PATH to
resolveat(2) in the future.
