Subject: [PATCH] selinux: fix residual uses of current_security() for the SELinux blob
Date: Wed,  4 Sep 2019 10:32:48 -0400
Message-ID: <20190904143248.7003-1-sds@tycho.nsa.gov> (raw)

We need to use selinux_cred() to fetch the SELinux cred blob instead
of directly using current->security or current_security().  There
were a couple of lingering uses of current_security() in the SELinux code
that were apparently missed during the earlier conversions. IIUC, this
would only manifest as a bug if multiple security modules including
SELinux are enabled and SELinux is not first in the lsm order. After
this change, there appear to be no other users of current_security()
in-tree; perhaps we should remove it altogether.

Fixes: bbd3662a8348 ("Infrastructure management of the cred security blob")
