The filesystem_walk API parses the FS internals of a partition and returns a list of all the files and directories contained within. It list deleted files and directories as well.

For each node, it reports its relative path, its inode and its allocation status.

This is the end user API for inspecting a disk partition content.

The command can handle filenames with special characters.

Example Use Cases:

 * inspect the FS content to see which deleted files could be possibly retrieved.
 * quickly check the FS content without mounting the disk
 * get a full mapping inode -> filepath of the disk
