    features/bit-rot: filesystem scrubber

    Scrubber performs signature verification for objects that were
    signed by signer. This is done by recalculating the signature
    (using the hash algorithm the object was signed with) and
    verifying it aginst the objects persisted signature. Since the
    object could be undergoing IO opretaion at the time of hash
    calculation, the signature may not match objects persisted
    signature. Bitrot stub provides additional information about
    the stalesness of an objects signature (determinted by it's
    versioning mechanism). This additional bit of information is
    used by scrubber to determine the staleness of the signature,
    and in such cases the object is skipped verification (although
    signature staleness is performed twice: once before initiation
    of hash calculation and another after it (an object could be
    modified after staleness checks).

    The implmentation is a part of the bitrot xlator (signer) which
    acts as a signer or scrubber based on a translator option. As
    of now the scrub process is ever running (but has some form of
    weak throttling mechanism during filesystem scan). Going forward,
    there needs to be some form of scrub scheduling and IO throttling
    (during hash calculation) tunables (via CLI).
