Add a mechanism to allow LSMs to make a policy decision around whether
kernel functionality that would allow tampering with or examining the
runtime state of the kernel should be permitted.

+ * These are reasons that can be passed to the security_locked_down()

+ * LSM authors should note that the semantics of any given lockdown

+ * one set of features in one kernel release, and a slightly different
+ * set of features in a later kernel release. LSMs that seek to expose
+ * lockdown policy at any level of granularity other than "none",
+ * "integrity" or "confidentiality" are responsible for either
+ * ensuring that they expose a consistent level of functionality to
+ * userland, or ensuring that userland is aware that this is
+ * potentially a moving target. It is easy to misuse this information
+ * in a way that could break userspace. Please be careful not to do
