Smack: Repair processing of fcntl
Al Viro pointed out that the processing of fcntl done by Smack appeared poorly designed. He was right. There are three things that required change. Most obviously, the list of commands that really imply writing is limited to those involving file locking and signal handling. The initialization if the file security blob was incomplete, requiring use of a heretofore unused LSM hook. Finally, the audit information coming from a helper masked the identity of the LSM hook. This patch corrects all three of these defects. This is targeted for the smack-next tree pending comments. Signed-off-by: Casey Schaufler <casey@schaufler-ca.com>
