Add the following flags to allow various restrictions on path resolution
(these affect the *entire* resolution, rather than just the final path
component -- as is the case with LOOKUP_FOLLOW).

The primary justification for these flags is to allow for programs to be
far more strict about how they want path resolution to handle symlinks,
mountpoint crossings, and paths that escape the dirfd (through an
absolute path or ".." shenanigans).

This is of particular concern to container runtimes that want to be very
careful about malicious root filesystems that a container's init might
have screwed around with (and there is no real way to protect against
this in userspace if you consider potential races against a malicious
container's init). More classical applications (which have their own
potentially buggy userspace path sanitisation code) include web servers,
archive extraction tools, network file servers, and so on.

These flags are exposed to userspace through openat2(2) in a later
patchset.

* LOOKUP_NO_XDEV: Disallow mount-point crossing (both *down* into one,
  or *up* from one). Both bind-mounts and cross-filesystem mounts are
  blocked by this flag. The naming is based on "find -xdev" as well as
  -EXDEV (though find(1) doesn't walk upwards, the semantics seem
  obvious).

* LOOKUP_NO_MAGICLINKS: Disallows ->get_link "symlink" (or rather,
  magic-link) jumping. This is a very specific restriction, and it
  exists because /proc/$pid/fd/... "symlinks" allow for access outside
  nd->root and pose risk to container runtimes that don't want to be
  tricked into accessing a host path (but do want to allow
  no-funny-business symlink resolution).

* LOOKUP_NO_SYMLINKS: Disallows resolution through symlinks of any kind
  (including magic-links).

* LOOKUP_BENEATH: Disallow "escapes" from the starting point of the
  filesystem tree during resolution (you must stay "beneath" the
  starting point at all times). Currently this is done by disallowing
  ".." and absolute paths (either in the given path or found during
  symlink resolution) entirely, as well as all magic-link jumping.

  The wholesale banning of ".." is because it is currently not safe to
  allow ".." resolution (races can cause the path to be moved outside of
  the root -- this is conceptually similar to historical chroot(2)
  escape attacks). Future patches in this series will address this, and
  will re-enable ".." resolution once it is safe. With those patches,
  ".." resolution will only be allowed if it remains in the root
  throughout resolution (such as "a/../b" not "a/../../outside/b").

  The banning of magic-link jumping is done because it is not clear
  whether semantically they should be allowed -- while some magic-links
  are safe there are many that can cause escapes (and once a
  resolution is outside of the root, O_BENEATH will no longer detect
  it). Future patches may re-enable magic-link jumping when such jumps
  would remain inside the root.

The LOOKUP_NO_*LINK flags return -ELOOP if path resolution would
violates their requirement, while the others all return -EXDEV.

This is a refresh of Al's AT_NO_JUMPS patchset[1] (which was a variation
on David Drysdale's O_BENEATH patchset[2], which in turn was based on
the Capsicum project[3]). Input from Linus and Andy in the AT_NO_JUMPS
thread[4] determined most of the API changes made in this refresh.
