  Make /snap a build-time configuration option

Bug description:

  snap-confine now has a build-time option to re-locate the /snap
  directory to an arbitrary location. This allows distributors to put
  the /snap directory, for example, to /var/lib/snapd/snap without
  affecting any applications at runtime. Snap application see a
  consistent world where /snap is still the mount point.

  [Test Case]

  Since this doesn't use this new build-time feature a simple regression
  test of running any snap application is sufficient to verify this.

  [Regression Potential]

  This change does not affect the Ubuntu package.

  [Other Info]

  * This bug is a part of a major SRU that brings snap-confine in Ubuntu
  16.04 in line with the current upstream release 1.0.41.

  * snap-confine is technically an integral part of snapd which has an
  SRU exception and is allowed to introduce new features and take
  advantage of accelerated procedure. For more information see

  == # Pre-SRU bug description follows # ==

  To support cases where the distribution wishes to use another snap
  mount directory (other than /snap) snap-confine needs to be aware of
  it to locate the core snap.

  This should be a build-time option as this is robust and easy to
  implement. We can explore other ideas later.
