fs, kernel: permit disabling the uselib syscall
uselib hasn't been used since libc5; glibc does not use it. Support turning it off. When disabled, also omit the load_elf_library implementation from binfmt_elf.c, which only uselib invokes. bloat-o-meter: add/remove: 0/4 grow/shrink: 0/1 up/down: 0/-785 (-785) function old new delta padzero 39 36 -3 uselib_flags 20 - -20 sys_uselib 168 - -168 SyS_uselib 168 - -168 load_elf_library 426 - -426 The new CONFIG_USELIB defaults to `y'.

+ This option enables the uselib syscall, a system call used in the
