[NetLabel]: core NetLabel subsystem

Add a new kernel subsystem, NetLabel, to provide explicit packet
labeling services (CIPSO, RIPSO, etc.) to LSM developers.  NetLabel is
designed to work in conjunction with a LSM to intercept and decode
security labels on incoming network packets as well as ensure that
outgoing network packets are labeled according to the security
mechanism employed by the LSM.  The NetLabel subsystem is configured
through a Generic NETLINK interface described in the header files
included in this patch.
