Introduce an (effectively) non-repeating system-unique superblock ID that
can be used to determine that two object are in the same superblock without
risking reuse of the ID in the meantime (as is possible with device IDs).

The ID is time-based to make it harder to use it as a covert communications
channel.

In future patches, this ID will be used to tag superblock notification
messages.  It will also be made queryable.
