User requests for XtraDB changed page tracking

Registered by Laurynas Biveinis on 2012-08-21

There should be the following user requests:
- FLUSH CHANGED_PAGE_BITMAPS for synchronous bitmap write for immediate catch-up with the log checkpoint. For use by innobackupex to make sure that XtraBackup indeed has all the required data it needs.
- RESET CHANGED_PAGE_BITMAPS to delete everything and restart the bitmap file sequence.
- PURGE CHANGED_PAGE_BITMAPS BEFORE lsn

All requests require SUPER privilege.
