    IIRC, the original deadlock call chain was when SELinux tried to set the
    security attribute on a newly created file from the post_create hooks.
    Looked something like (SELinux) post_create -> reiser_setxattr -> ... ->
    open_xa_dir -> reiserfs_mkdir -> d_instantiate ->
    selinux_d_instantiate() -> inode_doinit_with_dentry() ->
    reiser_getxattr. First reported in, but
    that only addressed the deadlock issue, not the permission checking
