Subject[patch 30/31] fix deadlock in audit_log_task_context()
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Al Viro <viro@ftp.linux.org.uk>

[PATCH] fix deadlock in audit_log_task_context()

GFP_KERNEL allocations in non-blocking context; fixed by killing
an idiotic use of security_getprocattr().
