Creation of a new LSM hook to check if a given configuration of vmflags,
for a new memory allocation request, should be allowed or not.
It's placed in "do_mmap", "do_brk_flags" and "__install_special_mapping".

Have the hook return a value and return that rather
than -EPERM. That way a security module can choose an
error that it determines is appropriate. It is possible
that a module might want to deny the access for a reason
other than lack of privilege.
