Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] vfs, fdtable: Add get_task_file helper
This introduces a function which can be used to fetch a file, given an
arbitrary task. As long as the user holds a reference (refcnt) to the
task_struct it is safe to call, and will either return NULL on failure,
or a pointer to the file, with a refcnt.
