Change subject: filesystem: be more strict in method add_file()

filesystem: be more strict in method add_file()

The file identifier of a file is strictly defined as a two digit
hexadecimal number. Do not allow adding child files that violate this

Since the human readable name also plays a major role in identifying
the type of the file (ADF, EF or DF) ensure that when adding files it
is ensured that the file actually has a name and that the name starts
with "DF.", "EF." or "ADF.".
