[coyotos-dev] Impending changes to space bank

I will be introducing a new operation. Given a bank B, this creates a
new sub-bank B' and transfers ownership of all storage associated with B
to B'. This is needed for initializer processes that wish to
self-destruct cleanly while leaving the object they initialized intact.

I also am starting to think about disk GC, which requires the ability to
get from an object to its currently owning bank. The simplest way to do
this may be to modify the on-disk object headers to include either the
ID of the bank or a capability to it.
