Not quite.  It returns 0 to indicate that it processed the argument and that
the argument doesn't belong to the filesystem.  It returns -ENOPARAM to
indicate that the argument should be passed along to the filesystem.  Any
other error is an actual error.

So this change is wrong.

The change that needs making is to the documentation - in particular
lsm_hooks.h.

And also the default for security_fs_context_parse_param() needs changing to
-ENOPARAM.

It depends from what point to see on it. Without this patch, the
linux-next kernel doesn't boot:

VFS: Cannot open root device "vda2" or unknown-block(253,2): error -2

I agree that I haven't understood the idea of this code. I found that
security_fs_context_parse_param returns 0 by default and decided that this
patch would fix the problem. I have sent an update version of the patch.

Pls, take a look at it. And we need to push this patch to linux-next. We can't
run CRIU tests for linux-next without it.

Thanks,
Andrei

apparmor_fs_context_parse_param() should be fixed too, it never returns
-ENOPARAM.
