Subject[PATCH 10/37] Security: Make NFSD work with detached security [ver #34]
Date
Make NFSD work with detached security, using the patches that excise the
security information from task_struct to struct task_security as a base.

Each time NFSD wants a new security descriptor (to do NFS4 recovery or just to
do NFS operations), a task_security record is derived from NFSD's *objective*
security, modified and then applied as the *subjective* security. This means
(a) the changes are not visible to anyone looking at NFSD through /proc, (b)
there is no leakage between two consecutive ops with different security
configurations.

Consideration should probably be given to caching the task_security record on
the basis that there'll probably be several ops that will want to use any
particular security configuration.

Furthermore, nfs4recover.c perhaps ought to set an appropriate LSM context on
the record pointed to by rec_security so that the disk is accessed
appropriately (see set_security_override[_from_ctx]()).

NOTE! This patch must be rolled in to one of the earlier security patches to
make it compile fully.
