Subject[PATCH 3/6] SELinux: Improve read/write performance
From: Yuichi Nakamura <ynakam@hitachisoft.jp>

It reduces the selinux overhead on read/write by only revalidating
permissions in selinux_file_permission if the task or inode labels have
changed or the policy has changed since the open-time check. A new LSM
hook, security_dentry_open, is added to capture the necessary state at open
time to allow this optimization.

(see http://marc.info/?l=selinux&m=118972995207740&w=2)
