core: Add inode context merge callback
Certain translators may require to update the inode context of an already linked inode before unwinding the call to the client. Normally, such a case in encountered during parallel operations when a fresh inode is chosen at call (wind) time. In the callback path, one of inodes is successfully linked in the inode table, thereby the other inodes being thrown away (and the inode pointers for these calls being pointed to the linked inode). Translators which may have strict dependency on the correct value in the inode context would get stale values in inode context. This patch introduces a new callback which provides gives translators an opportunity to "patch" their respective inode contexts. Note that, as of now, this callback is only invoked during create()s unwind path. Although this might needed to be done for all dentry fops and lookup, but let that be done as an when required (bitrot stub requires this *only* for create()).
