Add a security hook that allows an LSM to rule on whether a notification
message is allowed to be inserted into a particular watch queue.

The hook is given the following information:

 (1) The credentials of the triggerer (which may be init_cred for a system
     notification, eg. a hardware error).

 (2) The credentials of the whoever set the watch.

 (3) The notification message.
