Subject[PATCH v2 1/9] mm: Add msharefs filesystem
Date
Add a ram-based filesystem that contains page table sharing
information and files that enables processes to share page tables.
This patch adds the basic filesystem that can be mounted.

+=====================================================
+msharefs - a filesystem to support shared page tables
+=====================================================
+
+msharefs is a ram-based filesystem that allows multiple processes to
+share page table entries for shared pages.
+
+msharefs is typically mounted like this::
+
+ mount -t msharefs none /sys/fs/mshare
+
+When a process calls mshare syscall with a name for the shared address
+range, a file with the same name is created under msharefs with that
+name. This file can be opened by another process, if permissions
+allow, to query the addresses shared under this range. These files are
+removed by mshare_unlink syscall and can not be deleted directly.
+Hence these files are created as immutable files.
