You mean do MAC checks in security_path_*() and return error code of
security_path_*() in security_inode_*()? Then, method for passing the
error code to security_inode_*() is a problem.

It was possible to store the error code into current->security->
something. But now, it is impossible to store the error code into
current->cred->security->something because current->cred is shared by
multiple processes. To solve this problem, we everytime need to copy
current->cred in security_path_*() and we need a new hook called just
after returning from vfs_* (like mnt_drop_write()) for clearing the
error code.

Or, another way is to pass the error code as a vfs_*() parameter.

What do you think these approaches?
