Flower is a label-based networking daemon.

CloudABI applications are not permitted to call bind or connect on
sockets directly, as that would conflict with CloudABI's security model.
Instead, they can send RPCs to fulfill such requests to a separate
daemon, called Flower.

Like CloudABI, Flower makes use of a capability-based security model.
This makes it easy to spawn applications in such a way that they can
only have a limited view of the network, without requiring separate
users or complex access control policies.

net/flower: Update to 0.10

This release includes proper support for egresses, meaning sandboxed
applications can now make outgoing network connections properly. In
addition to that, a new utility, flower_ls, can be used to extract a
list of registered servers. This is pretty useful for debugging.

Bump cloudabi-utils' revision to catch up with .proto changes.

Add net/flower.

The latest versions of CloudABI make use of a separate daemon to
facilitate connecting/listening on the network, called Flower. Add a
package for this daemon, as it is a build dependency for the latest
version of cloudabi-utils.
