[NEW] plan9/u9fs - serve 9P from Unix

stanleylieber
From http://plan9.bell-labs.com/magic/man2html/4/u9fs:

U9fs is not a Plan 9 program. Instead it is a program that serves Unix
files to Plan 9 machines using the 9P protocol (see intro(5)). It is
typically invoked on a Unix machine by inetd with its standard input and
output connected to a network connection, typically TCP on an Ethernet.
It typically runs as user root and multiplexes access to multiple Plan 9
clients over the single wire. It assumes Plan 9 uids match Unix login
names, and changes to the corresponding Unix effective uid when
processing requests. Characters in file and directory names unacceptable
to Plan 9 are translated into a three-character sequence: \ followed by
two hexadecimal digits. U9fs serves both 9P1 (the 9P protocol as used by
the second and third editions of Plan 9) and 9P2000.

Built and tested on i386, amd64 and sparc64. Should also work on other
platforms. Please test and commit.

Updated from 2002 source to 2011 source. Now works reliably on amd64
and sparc64.
