csum-file: introduce sha1file_checkpoint
It is useful to be able to rewind a check-summed file to a certain previous state after writing data into it using sha1write() API. The fast-import command does this after streaming a blob data to the packfile being generated and then noticing that the same blob has already been written, and it does this with a private code truncate_pack() that is commented as "Yes, this is a layering violation". Introduce two API functions, sha1file_checkpoint(), that allows the caller to save a state of a sha1file, and then later revert it to the saved state. Use it to reimplement truncate_pack().
