      This (so-far) Linux-only API lets users create file descriptors purely
      in memory, without any backing file on the filesystem and the race
      condition which could ensue when unlink()ing it.
      It also allows seals to be placed on the file, ensuring to every other
      process that we won’t be allowed to shrink the contents, potentially
      causing a SIGBUS when they try reading it.
      This patch is best viewed with the -w option of git log -p.
      It is an almost exact copy of Wayland commit
