Subject[PATCH 4.4 75/75] fs/dcache: move security_d_instantiate() behind attaching dentry to inode
Date
From: "zhangyi (F)" <yi.zhang@huawei.com>

During backport 1e2e547a93a "do d_instantiate/unlock_new_inode
combinations safely", there was a error instantiating sequence of
attaching dentry to inode and calling security_d_instantiate().

Before commit ce23e640133 "->getxattr(): pass dentry and inode as
separate arguments" and b96809173e9 "security_d_instantiate(): move to
the point prior to attaching dentry to inode", security_d_instantiate()
should be called beind __d_instantiate(), otherwise it will trigger
below problem when CONFIG_SECURITY_SMACK on ext4 was enabled because
d_inode(dentry) used by ->getxattr() is NULL before __d_instantiate()
instantiate inode.
