SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] kmod: add init function to usermodehelper
Rediff of the usermodehelper changes after all the wreckage.  This patch
encompasses the patches that were formally in -mm as:
kmod-add-init-function-to-usermodehelper.patch
kmod-add-init-function-to-usermodehelper-fix.patch

I also rolled in changes from Oleg, moving the call of the init method down in
____call_usermodehelper, so the init function could override the nice level on
the process.
Create new function call_usermodehelper_fns() and allow it
to assign both an init and cleanup function, as we'll as arbitrary data.

The init function is called from the context of the forked process and
allows for customization of the helper process prior to calling exec. Its
return code gates the continuation of the process, or causes its exit.
Also add an arbitrary data pointer to the subprocess_info struct allowing
for data to be passed from the caller to the new process, and the
subsequent cleanup process

Also, use this patch to cleanup the cleanup function. It currently takes
an argp and envp pointer for freeing, which is ugly. Lets instead just
make the subprocess_info structure public, and pass that to the cleanup
and init routines
