gfileutils: Implement GFileSetContentsFlags

This moves `write_to_temp_file()` into `g_file_set_contents_full()` and
coalesces its handling of `do_fsync` with the `rename_file()` call. It
adds support for `G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_DURABLE` and
`G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_NONE` — previously only
`G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_CONSISTENT | G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_ONLY_EXISTING` was
supported.

In the case that `G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_CONSISTENT |
G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_DURABLE` is set, an additional `fsync()` is now done
on the directory after renaming the temporary file.

In the case that `G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_ONLY_EXISTING` isn’t set, the
`fsync()` after writing the temporary file will always be done (unless
the file system guarantees it never needs to be done).

In the case that only `G_FILE_SET_CONTENTS_DURABLE` is set, the
destination file will be written to directly (using this mode is not
really advised).
