fat: provide option for setting timezone offset
So far FAT either offsets time stamps by sys_tz.minuteswest or leaves them as they are (when tz=UTC mount option is used). However in some cases it is useful if one can specify time stamp offset on his own (e.g. when time zone of the camera connected is different from time zone of the computer, or when HW clock is in UTC and thus sys_tz.minuteswest == 0). So provide a mount option time_offset= which allows user to specify offset in minutes that should be applied to time stamps on the filesystem. akpm: this code would work incorrectly when used via `mount -o remount', because cached inodes would not be updated. But fatfs's fat_remount() is basically a no-op anyway.
