Make the taint flags reliable
It's somewhat unlikely that it happens, but right now a race window between interrupts or machine checks or oopses could corrupt the tainted bitmap because it is modified in a non atomic fashion. Convert the taint variable to an unsigned long and use only atomic bit operations on it. Unfortunately this means the intvec sysctl functions cannot be used on it anymore. It turned out the taint sysctl handler could actually be simplified a bit (since it only increases capabilities) so this patch actually removes code.
