Check that files given to jobsub_submit -f will be transferrable with ifdh
From Jeremy Wolcott:
It seems like (now that BA has been unmounted from grid nodes) that
jobsub itself should be screening for 'impossible-to-access' files given
as '-f' arguments to jobsub_submit. (We've implemented a similar check
in the wrapper we use for most jobsub_submit invocations on NOvA, but
there are always cases where a user needs to use jobsub_submit directly,
and human-nature type mistakes will continue to happen.) Is there any
chance something like that could be deployed?

For clarification, this doesn't mean running ifdh to try accessing the file or such, since as Ken pointed out it's possible the files won't be accessible on the submit node. This probably entails comparing the file path to a whitelist or blacklist of (un)allowable locations.
