projects - persistent project root definition

The /etc/projects file provides a mapping between numeric project identifiers and those directories which are the roots of the quota tree. Its format is simply:

# ...

The /etc/projects file is optional, instead xfs_quota(8) can be used with the -p argument to specify a project root directly for each operation.
