libbtrfsutil: add Python bindings
The C libbtrfsutil library isn't very useful for scripting, so we also want bindings for Python. Writing unit tests in Python is also much easier than doing so in C. Only Python 3 is supported; if someone really wants Python 2 support, they can write their own bindings. This commit is just the scaffolding.
