Smack: Remove pointless hooks
Prior to the 4.2 kernel there no no harm in providing a security module hook that does nothing, as the default hook would get called if the module did not supply one. With the list based infrastructure an empty hook adds overhead. This patch removes the three Smack hooks that don't actually do anything. Signed-off-by: Casey Schaufler <casey@schaufler-ca.com>
