provisos about this method in the manual page entry.  Callers
should *not* normally use this method.

The implementation of the handle also changes.  Before, the
handle was a blessed reference to an integer (the integer
being the pointer to the C guestfs_h handle).  Now we change
this to a hashref containing currently the following field:

  _g => pointer to C guestfs_h handle (as an integer)

If this field is not present, it means that the handle has been
explicitly closed.  This avoids double-freeing the handle.

The user may add their own fields to this hash in order to store
per-handle data.  However any fields whose names begin with
an underscore are reserved for use by the Perl bindings.

a method without a Sys::Guestfs handle as the first parameter,

We could fix this so that the human-readable numbers get written

file: Restrict to regular files (RHBZ#582484).

The file call can hang if called on char devices (because we are
using the file -s option).

This is hard to solve cleanly without adding another file API.

However this restricts file to regular files, unless called explicitly
with a /dev/ path.  For non-regular files, it will now return a
string like "directory".

There is a small semantic change for symbolic links.  Previously
it would not have worked at all on absolute links (or rather, the
results would have been undefined).  It would have treated relative
symlinks to regular files as the regular file itself.  Now it will
return the string "symbolic link" in both cases.

This commit also makes the API safe when called on untrusted
filesystems.  Previously a filesystem might have been set up so
that (eg) /etc/redhat-release was a char device, which would have
