ipc: re-enable msgmni automatic recomputing msgmni if set to negative
The enhancement as asked for by Yasunori: if msgmni is set to a negative value, register it back into the ipcns notifier chain. A new interface has been added to the notification mechanism: notifier_chain_cond_register() registers a notifier block only if not already registered. With that new interface we avoid taking care of the states changes in procfs.
