module: taint kernel when lve module is loaded
Cloudlinux have a product called lve that includes a kernel module. This was previously GPLed but is now under a proprietary license, but the module continues to declare MODULE_LICENSE("GPL") and makes use of some EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL symbols. Forcibly taint it in order to avoid this.
