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.

load_elf_library                             426       -    -426

The new CONFIG_USELIB defaults to `y'.

help
This option enables the uselib syscall, a system call used in the
dynamic linker from libc5 and earlier. glibc does not use this
system call. If you intend to run programs built on libc5 or
earlier, you may need to enable this syscall. Current systems
running glibc can safely disable this.
