Subject: [PATCH 3/3] Make LSM Writable Hooks a command line option

This patch shows how it is possible to take advantage of pmalloc:
instead of using the build-time option __lsm_ro_after_init, to decide if
it is possible to keep the hooks modifiable, now this becomes a
boot-time decision, based on the kernel command line.

This patch relies on:

"Convert security_hook_heads into explicit array of struct list_head"
Author: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@...ove.SAKURA.ne.jp>

to break free from the static constraint imposed by the previous
hardening model, based on __ro_after_init.

The default value is disabled, unless SE Linux debugging is turned on.
