Subject[PATCH 5.2 131/137] smack: use GFP_NOFS while holding inode_smack::smk_lock
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

commit e5bfad3d7acc5702f32aafeb388362994f4d7bd0 upstream.

inode_smack::smk_lock is taken during smack_d_instantiate(), which is
called during a filesystem transaction when creating a file on ext4.
Therefore to avoid a deadlock, all code that takes this lock must use
GFP_NOFS, to prevent memory reclaim from waiting for the filesystem
transaction to complete.
