Introduce "protection_bypass" privilege.
This privilege allows map protection bypassing for server operators and world moderators. Initially I had thought that bypassing protection mods would have been something that could entirely be done inside mods and minetest_game, but the concept of protection is defined in core, in the code of core.is_protected(). I don't feel that it would be logical to introduce a protection concept in core, but not some way around that for server operators to maintain map parts that need fixing, de-griefing or cleanup. Others had noticed the same problems, and proposed a patch to minetest_game. That patch is fine by itself, but it fails to add protection bypass functionality for digging normal nodes and placing nodes. So, instead, we indroduce the new priv "protection_bypass" in core, and modify 'on_place_node' and 'node_dig' to allow bypassing node protections if the player holds this priv. This priv was tested with protector redo by tenplus1. A followup patch to Minetest Game will include allowing special checks for doors, trapdoors, chests in Minetest Game. Protection mods will likely want to mimic the changes in their relevant code sections.
