Subject[PATCH 2/3] p9auth: add CAP_GRANT_ID to authorize use of /dev/caphash

Granting userid capabilities to another task is a dangerous
privilege. Don't just let file permissions authorize it.
Define CAP_GRANT_ID as a new capability needed to write to
/dev/caphash.

For one thing this lets us start a factotum server early on
in init, then have init drop CAP_GRANT_ID from its bounding
set so the rest of the system cannot regain it.
