  • Next message: James Carter: "[PATCH] Backport of early init for security modules"

    This patch against lsm-2.4 is a backport of the changes accepted into
    the 2.5/6 kernel.  It moves the security_d_instantiate hook call in
    d_instantiate.  This change allows a security module to be able to
    internally call the getxattr inode operation, which uses a dentry
    parameter, from this hook to obtain a security label.
    The new 2.4-based SELinux (a backport of the 2.6-based SELinux) depends
    on these, so we'd like to get them into the lsm-2.4 tree so that we can
    also merge the new 2.4-based SELinux into it.
    For reference see Steve's LSM email of 28 April 2003.
    If there are no objections, I will ask Steve to merge it.
