This patch allows LSM modules to determine whether current process is in an
execve operation or not so that they can behave differently while an execve
operation is in progress.

This allows TOMOYO to dispense with a readability check on a file to be
executed under the process's current credentials, and to do it instead under
the proposed credentials.

This is required with the new COW credentials because TOMOYO is no longer
allowed to mark the state temporarily in the security struct attached to the
task_struct.
