Hi Joerg,

There's a small problem with smack and NFS. A similar report was also
sent here: http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/10/27/85

Could you please check below patch ? I think it should fix your problem.

I've also added similar checks in inode_{get/set}security(). Cheating
from SELinux post_create_socket(), it does the same. Casey, Thoughts ?
