security: secid_to_secctx returns len when data is NULL
With the (long ago) interface change to have the secid_to_secctx functions do the string allocation instead of having the caller do the allocation we lost the ability to query the security server for the length of the upcoming string. The SECMARK code would like to allocate a netlink skb with enough length to hold the string but it is just too unclean to do the string allocation twice or to do the allocation the first time and hold onto the string and slen. This patch adds the ability to call security_secid_to_secctx() with a NULL data pointer and it will just set the slen pointer.
