Many file systems use a copy&paste implementation
of dirent to on-disk file type conversions.

Create a common implementation to be used by file systems
with some useful conversion helpers to reduce open coded
file type conversions in file system code.

 create mode 100644 include/linux/file_type.h


Fixed a comment by Darrick and a build warning reported by kbuild robot.

These changes are local to the common implementation, so not re-spamming
with all the non changed fs patches.

v2:
- s/DT_MASK/S_DT_MASK to fix redefinition in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_def.h
- explicit initialization of fs_dtype_by_ftype[] using [FT_*] = DT_*

v1:
- initial implementation
