net: Implement register_net_sysctl.
Right now all of the networking sysctl registrations are running in a compatibiity mode. The natvie sysctl registration api takes a cstring for a path and a simple ctl_table. Implement register_net_sysctl so that we can register network sysctls without needing to use compatiblity code in the sysctl core. Switching from a ctl_path to a cstring results in less boiler plate and denser code that is a little easier to read. I would simply have changed the arguments to register_net_sysctl_table instead of keeping two functions in parallel but gcc will allow a ctl_path pointer to be passed to a char * pointer with only issuing a warning resulting in completely incorrect code can be built. Since I have to change the function name I am taking advantage of the situation to let both register_net_sysctl and register_net_sysctl_table live for a short time in parallel which makes clean conversion patches a bit easier to read and write.
