[PATCH v2 2/7] smack: extend capability functions and fix 2 checks

This patch extends smack capability functions to a full list to those
equivalent in the kernel

has_ns_capability -> smack_has_ns_privilege
has_capability    -> smack_has_privilege
ns_capable        -> smack_ns_privileged
capable           -> smack_privileged

It also puts the smack related part to a common function:
smack_capability_allowed()

Those functions will be needed for capability checks in the upcoming
Smack namespace patches.

Additionally there were 2 smack capability checks that used generic
capability functions instead of specific Smack ones effectively ignoring
the onlycap rule. This has been fixed now with the introduction of those
new functions.

This has implications on the Smack namespace as well as the additional
Smack checks in smack_capability_allowed() will be extended beyond the
onlycap rule. Not using Smack specific checks in those 2 places could
mean breaking the Smack label namespace separation.
