[ Upstream commit 03fedf93593c82538b18476d8c4f0e8f8435ea70 ]

When inode has no listxattr op of its own (e.g. squashfs) vfs_listxattr
calls the LSM inode_listsecurity hooks to list the xattrs that LSMs will
intercept in inode_getxattr hooks.

When selinux LSM is installed but not initialized, it will list the
security.selinux xattr in inode_listsecurity, but will not intercept it
in inode_getxattr.  This results in -ENODATA for a getxattr call for an
xattr returned by listxattr.

This situation was manifested as overlayfs failure to copy up lower
files from squashfs when selinux is built-in but not initialized,
because ovl_copy_xattr() iterates the lower inode xattrs by
vfs_listxattr() and vfs_getxattr().

ovl_copy_xattr() skips copy up of security labels that are indentified by
inode_copy_up_xattr LSM hooks, but it does that after vfs_getxattr().
Since we are not going to copy them, skip vfs_getxattr() of the security
labels.
