It is common practice for security solutions to store tags/labels in
xattrs. To implement similar functionalities in BPF LSM, add new kfunc
bpf_get_file_xattr().

The first use case of bpf_get_file_xattr() is to implement file
verifications with asymmetric keys. Specificially, security applications
could use fsverity for file hashes and use xattr to store file signatures.
(kfunc for fsverity hash will be added in a separate commit.)

Currently, only xattrs with "user." prefix can be read with kfunc
bpf_get_file_xattr(). As use cases evolve, we may add a dedicated prefix
for bpf_get_file_xattr().

To avoid recursion, bpf_get_file_xattr can be only called from LSM hooks.
