fuse: Add a new mount option capability
Originally all security.* xattrs were forbidden if selinux is disabled, which was causing Samba's acl_xattr module to not work, as it would store the NTACL in security.NTACL. To fix this was sent, which forbid only security.selinux. This opened up a getxattr call on security.capability before every write fop and others. Capabilities can be used without selinux, hence if selinux is disabled, security.capability cannot be forbidden. Hence adding a new mount option called capability. Only when "--capability" or "--selinux" mount option is used, security.capability is sent to the brick, else it is forbidden.
