David Howells July 13, 2020, 4:35 p.m. UTC
Add a trio of helper functions:

	fscache_read_helper_page_list();
	fscache_read_helper_locked_page();
	fscache_read_helper_for_write();

to do the work of shaping read requests, attempting to read from the cache,
issuing or reissuing requests to the filesystem to pass to the server and
writing back to the filesystem.

The filesystem passes in a prepared request descriptor with the fscache
descriptor embedded in it to one of the helper functions.  The caller also
indicates which page(s) it is interested in and provides some operations to
issue reads and manage the request descriptor.

The helper is placed into its own module, fsinfo_support.ko, which must be
enabled unconditionally by any filesystem which wishes to use the helper
even if CONFIG_FSCACHE=no.  This module is selected by
CONFIG_FSCACHE_SUPPORT.  About half of the code is optimised away by
CONFIG_FSCACHE=no.

Also add a tracepoint to track calls.  A set of 'notes' are taken to record
the path through the function and this is dumped into the trace.
