f2fs-tools: Make sload.f2fs reproduce hard links
If sload.f2fs encounters a file with nr_links > 1, it will mark it
as a possible hard link by remembering the original device and
inode. When sload.f2fs creates the file, it will check if it has
already created a file for the same original device and inode. If
so, it will add the original inode to the directory and increment
the number of links to it, instead of writing a new inode.
This allows sload.f2fs to accurately reproduce a directory tree that
contains hard links, such as those created by ostree. Without this
patch, directory trees containing hard links result in the content of
the files being duplicated.
This is version 2 of the patch; it has been rebased against the dev
branch and includes a fix from Jaegeuk Kim to avoid building data
contents twice on hard linked files.
