[PATCH security-next v5 20/30] LSM: Prepare for reorganizing "security=" logic




This moves the string handling for "security=" boot parameter into
a stored pointer instead of a string duplicate. This will allow
easier handling of the string when switching logic to use the coming
enable/disable infrastructure.
