    cbfs: new API and better program loading
    A new CBFS API is introduced to allow making CBFS access
    easier for providing multiple CBFS sources. That is achieved
    by decoupling the cbfs source from a CBFS file. A CBFS
    source is described by a descriptor. It contains the necessary
    properties for walking a CBFS to locate a file. The CBFS
    file is then decoupled from the CBFS descriptor in that it's
    no longer needed to access the contents of the file.
    All of this is accomplished using the regions infrastructure
    by repsenting CBFS sources and files as region_devices. Because
    region_devices can be chained together forming subregions this
    allows one to decouple a CBFS source from a file. This also allows
    one to provide CBFS files that came from other sources for
    payload and/or stage loading.
    The program loading takes advantage of those very properties
    by allowing multiple sources for locating a program. Because of
    this we can reduce the overhead of loading programs because
    it's all done in the common code paths. Only locating the
    program is per source.
