No, sorry for the confusion.
I seem to have triggered a git send-email bug.

Just the earlier one. I added his sign-off because of this paragraph
in SubmittingPatches:
| The Signed-off-by: tag indicates that the signer was involved in the
| development of the patch, or that he/she was in the patch's delivery path.

Without we label all nodes in /proc/ through selinux_proc_get_sid.

/proc/1/limits should not get it's sid from here, but from
security_task_to_inode -> selinux_task_to_inode.

Without the check we send "/1/limits" to selinux_proc_get_sid, which
strips off "/1" leaving "/limits". This will be labeled with "proc_t"
IIRC.
