filesystem freeze: implement generic freeze feature
The ioctls for the generic freeze feature are below. o Freeze the filesystem int ioctl(int fd, int FIFREEZE, arg) fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint FIFREEZE: request code for the freeze arg: Ignored Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1 o Unfreeze the filesystem int ioctl(int fd, int FITHAW, arg) fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint FITHAW: request code for unfreeze arg: Ignored Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1 Error number: If the filesystem has already been unfrozen, errno is set to EINVAL.
