vfs: introduce noop_llseek()



This is an implementation of ->llseek useable for the rare special case
when userspace expects the seek to succeed but the (device) file is
actually not able to perform the seek.  In this case you use noop_llseek()
instead of falling back to the default implementation of ->llseek.
