Add allowed_mapgens option in game.conf. (#9263)
The game.conf has a disallowed_mapgens option. However, some games
require a certain mapgen to be used, like the CTF plugin. This change
adds an option to specify allowed mapgens so that the setting can be
specified in a way that needn't be updated as map generators are added
to Minetest.
