(please add linux-fsdevel and viro to the cc for future versions of this
patch since it changes the VFS)

Seems like this is precluded by the caller and would be a bug? If
needed at all, take it to the security_inode_init_security_anon() so it
doesn't have to be repeated in each security module.

I don't think this is viable; any arbitrary actions are possible before
policy is loaded, and a Linux distro can be brought up fully with
SELinux enabled and no policy loaded. You'll just need to have a
default behavior prior to initialization.

I think the kernel discourages overuse of BUG_ON/BUG/...

Not sure we want or need to introduce a new security class for each user
of anonymous inodes since the permissions should be the same as for
file. Also not sure we want to be testing fops for each such case. We
were looking at possibly leveraging the name as a key and using
security_transition_sid() to generate a distinct SID/context/type for
the inode via type_transition rules in policy. We have some WIP along
those lines.

This doesn't generalize for other users of anonymous inodes, e.g. the
/dev/kvm case where we'd rather inherit the SID and class from the
original /dev/kvm inode itself.
