Failure in __init functions of vmlinux means that the system failed
before the global /sbin/init process starts. There is little value
with continuing the boot process. Calling panic() or BUG_ON() will
be OK, for the userspace will be get confused by lack of that file
even if we continued without securityfs entry in /proc/filesystems .
