This patch introduces a new security hook that is intended for
initializing the security data for newly created kernfs nodes, which
provide a way of storing a non-default security context, but need to
operate independently from mounts (and therefore may not have an
associated inode at the moment of creation).

The main motivation is to allow kernfs nodes to inherit the context of
the parent under SELinux, similar to the behavior of
security_inode_init_security(). Other LSMs may implement their own logic
for handling the creation of new nodes.

The interface of the new hook provides the following to the LSM:
 * a qstr containing the name of the new node
 * initial inode attributes (struct iattr + simple_xattrs) of the new
   node
 * inode attributes of the parent node (directory)
