Smack: setprocattr memory leak fix
The data structure allocations being done in prepare_creds are duplicated in smack_setprocattr. This results in the structure allocated in prepare_creds being orphaned and never freed. The duplicate code is removed from smack_setprocattr. Targeted for git://git.gitorious.org/smack-next/kernel.git Signed-off-by: Casey Schaufler <casey@schaufler-ca.com>
