The maximum number of nested Landlock domains is currently 64.  Because
of the following fix and to help reduce the stack size, let's reduce it
to 16.  This seems large enough for a lot of use cases (e.g. sandboxed
init service, spawning a sandboxed SSH service, in nested sandboxed
containers).  Reducing the number of nested domains may also help to
discover misuse of Landlock (e.g. creating a domain per rule).

Add and use a dedicated layer_mask_t typedef to fit with the number of
layers.  This might be useful when changing it and to keep it consistent
with the maximum number of layers.

+There is a limit of 16 layers of stacked rulesets.  This can be an issue for a
+task willing to enforce a new ruleset in complement to its 16 inherited
 rulesets.  Once this limit is reached, sys_landlock_restrict_self() returns
 E2BIG.  It is then strongly suggested to carefully build rulesets once in the
 life of a thread, especially for applications able to launch other applications
