add a stat_validity struct
It can sometimes be useful to know whether a path in the filesystem has been updated without going to the work of opening and re-reading its content. We trust the stat() information on disk already to handle index updates, and we can use the same trick here. This patch introduces a "stat_validity" struct which encapsulates the concept of checking the stat-freshness of a file. It is implemented on top of "struct stat_data" to reuse the logic about which stat entries to trust for a particular platform, but hides the complexity behind two simple functions: check and update.
