There are a number of places that the LSM function is called immediately
followed by either EVM/IMA. In each of those places it is hidden from
the caller by calling the security_inode_XXX_security(). In this case
each fs has it's own method of creating an extended attribute. If that
method could be passed to security_inode_init_security, then
security_inode_init_security() could call both the LSM and EVM functions
directly.
