Subject: [PATCH 24/30] debugfs: Disallow use of debugfs files when the kernel is locked down

Disallow opening of debugfs files when the kernel is locked down as various
drivers give raw access to hardware through debugfs.

Accesses to tracefs should use /sys/kernel/tracing/ rather than
/sys/kernel/debug/tracing/.  Possibly a symlink should be emplaced.

Normal device interaction should be done through configfs or a miscdev, not
debugfs.

Note that this makes it unnecessary to specifically lock down show_dsts(),
show_devs() and show_call() in the asus-wmi driver.
