Subject[PATCH 01/14] VFS: Factor out part of vfs_setxattr so it can be called from the SELinux hook for inode_setsecctx.
Date
This factors out the part of the vfs_setxattr function that performs the
setting of the xattr and its notification. This is needed so the SELinux
implementation of inode_setsecctx can handle the setting of it's xattr while
maintaining the proper separation of layers.
