Add UAPI definitions for the general notification queue, including the
following pieces:

 (*) struct watch_notification.

     This is the metadata header for notification messages.  It includes a
     type and subtype that indicate the source of the message
     (eg. WATCH_TYPE_MOUNT_NOTIFY) and the kind of the message
     (eg. NOTIFY_MOUNT_NEW_MOUNT).

     The header also contains an information field that conveys the
     following information:

	- WATCH_INFO_LENGTH.  The size of the entry (entries are variable
          length).

	- WATCH_INFO_ID.  The watch ID specified when the watchpoint was
          set.

	- WATCH_INFO_TYPE_INFO.  (Sub)type-specific information.

	- WATCH_INFO_FLAG_*.  Flag bits overlain on the type-specific
          information.  For use by the type.

     All the information in the header can be used in filtering messages at
     the point of writing into the buffer.

 (*) struct watch_notification_removal

     This is an extended watch-removal notification record that includes an
     'id' field that can indicate the identifier of the object being
     removed if available (for instance, a keyring serial number).
