I learnt this the hard way that IRC that is passed to the
call_int_hook macro is not the same as the default value for a hook

call_int_hook accomdates for a different return value when no hook is
implemented, but it does expect the default value of the hook to be 0
as it compares the return value of the callbacks to 0 instead of the
default value whereas these special cases compare it with the default
value.

For example:

If we define the default_value of the secid_to_secctx to
-EOPNOTSUPP, it changes the behaviour and the BPF hook, which
returns this default value always results in a failure.

I noticed this when I saw a bunch of messages on my VM:

audit: error in audit_log_task_context

which comes from audit_log_task_context and calls
security_secid_to_secctx which ends up being always denied by BPF.

In anycase, I am still adding the default value in LSM_HOOK and using
them in the following hooks:

getprocattr -EINVAL
inode_getsecurity -EOPNOTSUPP
inode_setsecurity -EOPNOTSUPP
setprocattr -EINVAL
task_prctl -ENOSYS
xfrm_state_pol_flow_match 1

Will send v6 out with these changes.
