fsnotify: clone existing events



fsnotify_clone_event will take an event, clone it, and return the cloned
event to the caller.  Since events may be in use by multiple fsnotify
groups simultaneously certain event entries (such as the mask) cannot be
changed after the event was created.  Since fanotify would like to merge
events happening on the same file it needs a new clean event to work with
so it can change any fields it wishes.
