Subject[RFC][PATCH] Add LSM syslog hook to 2.5.59

This patch adds the LSM security_syslog hook for controlling the
syslog(2) interface relative to 2.5.59 plus the previously posted
security_sysctl patch. In response to earlier comments by Christoph,
the existing capability check for syslog(2) is moved into the
capability security module hook function, and a corresponding dummy
security module hook function is defined that provides traditional
superuser behavior. The LSM hook is placed in do_syslog rather than
sys_syslog so that it is called when either the system call interface
or the /proc/kmsg interface is used. SELinux uses this hook to
control access to the kernel message ring and to the console log
level.

If anyone has any objections to this change, please let me know.
