Add the FUSE_SECURITY_CTX flag for the `flags` field of the
fuse_init_out struct.  When this flag is set the kernel will append the
security context for a newly created inode to the request (create,
mkdir, mknod, and symlink).  The server is responsible for ensuring that
the inode appears atomically with the requested security context.

For example, if the server is backed by a "real" linux file system then
it can write the security context value to
/proc/thread-self/attr/fscreate before making the syscall to create the
inode.
