[PATCH (resend)] tomoyo: Add a kernel config option for fuzzing testing.

syzbot is reporting kernel panic triggered by memory allocation fault
injection before loading TOMOYO's policy [1]. To make the fuzzing tests
useful, we need to assign a profile other than "disabled" (no-op) mode.
Therefore, let's allow syzbot to load TOMOYO's built-in policy for
"learning" mode using a kernel config option. This option must not be
enabled for kernels built for production system, for this option also
disables domain/program checks when modifying policy configuration via
/sys/kernel/security/tomoyo/ interface.

 	  You can override this setting via TOMOYO_trigger= kernel command line

+	  this option only if this kernel is built for doing fuzzing tests.
