[PATCH security-next v5 21/30] LSM: Refactor "security=" in terms of enable/disable




For what are marked as the Legacy Major LSMs, make them effectively
exclusive when selected on the "security=" boot parameter, to handle
the future case of when a previously major LSMs become non-exclusive
(e.g. when TOMOYO starts blob-sharing).
