Add an IOCB_CACHED flag which indicates to generic_file_read_iter that
it should only regard the page cache, without triggering any filesystem
I/O for the actual request or for readahead.  With this flag, -EAGAIN is
returned when regular I/O would be triggered similar to the IOCB_NOWAIT
flag, and -ECANCELED is returned when readahead would be triggered.

This allows the caller to perform a tentative read out of the page
cache, and to retry the read if the requested pages are not cached.

Please see the next commit for what this is used for.
