    netns: add register_pernet_gen_subsys/unregister_pernet_gen_subsys
    
    netns ops which are registered with register_pernet_gen_device() are
    shutdown strictly before those which are registered with
    register_pernet_subsys(). Sometimes this leads to opposite (read: buggy)
    shutdown ordering between two modules.
    
    Add register_pernet_gen_subsys()/unregister_pernet_gen_subsys() for modules
    which aren't elite enough for entry in struct net, and which can't use
    register_pernet_gen_device(). PPTP conntracking module is such one.
