FICLONE/FICLONERANGE ioctls return -EXDEV if src and dest
files are not on the same mount point.
Practically, clone only requires that src and dest files
are on the same file system.

Move the check for same mount point to ioctl code and keep
only the check for same super block in the vfs helper.

A following patch is going to use the vfs_clone_file_range()
helper in overlayfs to copy up between lower and upper
mount points on the same file system.
