[PATCH 2/2] procfs: Add 'path' to /proc/<pid>/fdinfo/

In order to identify the type of memory a process has pinned through
its open fds, add the file path to fdinfo output. This allows
identifying memory types based on common prefixes. e.g. "/memfd...",
"/dmabuf...", "/dev/ashmem...".

Access to /proc/<pid>/fdinfo is governed by PTRACE_MODE_READ_FSCREDS
the same as /proc/<pid>/maps which also exposes the file path of
mappings; so the security permissions for accessing path is consistent
with that of /proc/<pid>/maps.

Changes from rfc:
  - Split adding 'size' and 'path' into a separate patches, per Christian
  - Fix indentation (use tabs) in documentaion, per Randy
