    sysctl: Factor out sysctl_data.
    
    There as been no easy way to wrap the default sysctl strategy routine except
    for returning 0.  Which is not always what we want.  The few instances I 
have
    seen that want different behaviour have written their own version of
    sysctl_data.  While not too hard it is unnecessary code and has the 
potential
    for extra bugs.
    
    So to make these situations easier and make that part of sysctl more 
symetric
    I have factord sysctl_data out of do_sysctl_strategy and exported as a
    function everyone can use.
    
    Further having sysctl_data be an explicit function makes checking for badly
    formed sysctl tables much easier.
