[RFC v2][PATCH 5/9] Create trivial sys_checkpoint and sys_restore system calls

From: Oren Laadan <orenl at cs.columbia.edu>

Create trivial sys_checkpoint and sys_restore system calls. They will
enable to checkpoint and restart an entire container, to and from a
checkpoint image file.

First create a template for both syscalls: they take a file descriptor
(for the image file) and flags as arguments. For sys_checkpoint the
first argument identifies the target container; for sys_restart it will
identify the checkpoint image.
