CRFS code released!

Zach Brown finally got the green light to release the source to his cool new remote file system prototype:

From Zach’s post to fs-devel:

I think the video recording of the talk does a decent job of giving an
overview of the design, and it's a hoot, but I can give a quick summary:

- the user space server exports a private BTRFS volume
- the network protocol operates on ranges of BTRFS disk items
- the kernel client provides posix semantics by operating on items
- the server can grant and revoke client caches of data and metadata

There's a lot of complexity hiding in those four lines but those are the
critical properties to grasp :).
