This adds a member privunit ("privilege unit locally unique ID") to
task_struct. privunit is only shared by processes that share the
mm_struct and the signal_struct; not just spatially, but also temporally.
In other words, if you do execve() or clone() without CLONE_THREAD, you
get a new privunit that has never been used before.

privunit is used in later patches to check during ptrace access
checks whether subject and object are temporally and spatially equal for
privilege checking purposes.

The implementation of locally unique IDs is in sched.h and exec.c for now
because those are the only users so far - if anything else wants to use
them in the future, they can be moved elsewhere.

changed in v2:
 - have 2^64 IDs per CPU instead of 2^64 shared ones (luid scheme,
   suggested by Andy Lutomirski)
 - take task_lock for reading in setup_new_exec() while bumping the LUID

changed in v3:
 - Make privunit a new member of task_struct instead of reusing
   self_exec_id. This reduces locking trouble and allows self_exec_id to be
   removed at a later point. (Oleg Nesterov)
 - statically initialize luid_counters instead of using an __init function
   (Andy Lutomirski)
