vfs: pull btrfs clone API to vfs layer
The btrfs clone ioctls are now adopted by other file systems, with NFS and CIFS already having support for them, and XFS being under active development. To avoid growth of various slightly incompatible implementations, add one to the VFS. Note that clones are different from file copies in several ways: - they are atomic vs other writers - they support whole file clones - they support 64-bit legth clones - they do not allow partial success (aka short writes) - clones are expected to be a fast metadata operation Because of that it would be rather cumbersome to try to piggyback them on top of the recent clone_file_range infrastructure. The converse isn't true and the clone_file_range system call could try clone file range as a first attempt to copy, something that further patches will enable. Based on earlier work from Peng Tao.
