Subject[PATCH 5.4 20/90] tomoyo: Use atomic_t for statistics counter
Date
From: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp>

commit a8772fad0172aeae339144598b809fd8d4823331 upstream.

syzbot is reporting that there is a race at tomoyo_stat_update() [1].
Although it is acceptable to fail to track exact number of times policy
was updated, convert to atomic_t because this is not a hot path.
