Subject[patch 2/4] permission mapping for sys_syslog operations
As suggested by Stephen Smalley: map the various sys_syslog operations
to a smaller set of privilege codes before calling security modules.
This patch changes the security module interface! There should be no
change in the actual security semantics enforced by dummy, capability,
nor SELinux (with one exception, clearly marked in sys_syslog).

Change from previous version of patch: the privilege codes are now
in linux/security.h instead of linux/klog.h, and use the LSM_* naming
convention used for other such constants in that file.
