Add fields to the superblock to track the min and max
timestamps supported by filesystems.

Initially, when a superblock is allocated, initialize
it to the max and min values the fields can hold.
Individual filesystems override these to match their
actual limits.

Pseudo filesystems are assumed to always support the
min and max allowable values for the fields.

Note that the time ranges are saved in type time64_t
rather than time_t.
This is required because if we save ranges in time_t
then we would not be able to save timestamp ranges
for files that support timestamps beyond y2038.
