Add an shm_rename syscall

Description

Add an shm_rename syscall

Add an atomic shm rename operation, similar in spirit to a file
rename. Atomically unlink an shm from a source path and link it to a
destination path. If an existing shm is linked at the destination
path, unlink it as part of the same atomic operation. The caller needs
the same permissions as shm_unlink to the shm being renamed, and the
same permissions for the shm at the destination which is being
unlinked, if it exists. If those fail, EACCES is returned, as with the
other shm_* syscalls.

truss support is included; audit support will come later.

This commit includes only the implementation; the sysent-generated
bits will come in a follow-on commit.
