Hello All,

This is the revised version to add ocfs2 reflink feature to cp(1) based on 
Joel's comments.

Changes:
1. Remove 'is_ocfs2_file()' function, it does not need to pre-check the file 
system type for reflink
operation.  If ocfs2 reflink ioctl(2) failed due to this issue or any other 
reason, proceed to do
btrfs clone operation.
2. Do perserve attriutes if `cp' invoked with '-p' opition.  In this 
case,'mode,ownership,timestamp'
are reflinked to destination file; security_context will be reflinked as well 
if possible.
Also, 'xattrs' are reflinked always no matter preserve_attr or preserve_none 
specified.
3. From the code layout point of view, I separated ocfs2 reflink and btrfs 
clone into 2 steps.
the reason is, ocfs2 ioctl(2) play with the destination path name instead of a 
file descriptor.
So I place its code block at the top of '*new_dst' check, otherwise, we have to 
unlink(2) the
'dst_desc' when trying ocfs2 reflink ioctl(2).

Would you guys please review the patch which shown as following?  I will 
continue to write the test
script if you guys like the current implemention.

Any comments are appreciated!

Subject: [PATCH 1/1] Add ocfs2 reflink to cp(1), it share the same 
'--reflink=[WHEN]' option
 with btrfs clone operation.

If cp(1) invoked with '-p' option, and the underlaying file system is OCFS2 for
both source and destination files, it will try to preserve the default
attributes(i.e. 'mode,ownership,timestamp'), xattr as well as security context 
if possbile.
