sysctl: Add register_sysctl for normal sysctl users
The plan is to convert all callers of register_sysctl_table and register_sysctl_paths to register_sysctl. The interface to register_sysctl is enough nicer this should make the callers a bit more readable. Additionally after the conversion the 230 lines of backwards compatibility can be removed.
