rump_fs and fs_rom: changed file notification

Hello Stefan,

Have you tried using the vfs server in combination with the rump plugin?
I believe the plan is to make the rump_fs server disappear and use the
vfs plugin in its place, which supports notifications. Sculpt in fact
uses the rump vfs plugin exclusively (see /config/managed/runtime).
