Are you sure? Those inodes should be labeled by proc_pid_make_inode()
-> security_task_to_inode() -> selinux_task_to_inode(), which will set
the inode SID to match the associated task SID, and set the
isec->initialized flag. Then when inode_doinit_with_dentry gets called
later, it should bail immediately due to isec->initialized already being
set.
