[PATCH security-next v5 15/30] LSM: Lift LSM selection out of individual LSMs




As a prerequisite to adjusting LSM selection logic in the future, this
moves the selection logic up out of the individual major LSMs, making
their init functions only run when actually enabled. This considers all
LSMs enabled by default unless they specified an external "enable"
variable.
