In case a file has an invalid context set, in an AVC record generated
upon access to such file, the target context is always reported as
unlabeled. This patch adds new optional fields to the AVC record
(srawcon and trawcon) that report the actual context string if it
differs from the one reported in scontext/tcontext. This is useful for
diagnosing SELinux denials involving invalid contexts.

To trigger an AVC that illustrates this situation:

    # setenforce 0
    # touch /tmp/testfile
    # setfattr -n security.selinux -v system_u:object_r:banana_t:s0 /tmp/testfile
    # runcon system_u:system_r:sshd_t:s0 cat /tmp/testfile

AVC before:

type=AVC msg=audit(1547801083.248:11): avc:  denied  { open } for  pid=1149 comm="cat" path="/tmp/testfile" dev="tmpfs" ino=6608 scontext=system_u:system_r:sshd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s15:c0.c1023 tclass=file permissive=1

AVC after:

type=AVC msg=audit(1547801083.248:11): avc:  denied  { open } for  pid=1149 comm="cat" path="/tmp/testfile" dev="tmpfs" ino=6608 scontext=system_u:system_r:sshd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s15:c0.c1023 trawcon=system_u:object_r:banana_t:s0 tclass=file permissive=1

v2: Rename fields to "(s|t)rawcon".

I would like us to add new fields at the end of existing records; the
recent audit config changes are a bit of a special case as discussed
previously.

Also, under what cases would we ever see a srawcon field?  This is
only going to happen if we have a running process whose domain is
removed during a policy reload, correct?  I'm find with including this
for the sake of completeness, but I would mention this in the patch
description for the next revision.

Technically could occur on other permission checks where the source 
context isn't a process context, e.g. filesystem associate check 
(scontext/srawcon is a file context), socket checks (scontext/srawcon is 
a socket context, which may not correspond to any running process if 
passed to another or using /proc/self/attr/sockcreate), msgq enqueue 
(scontext/srawcon is context of message).  Common property is that the 
context had to have been valid at the point it was converted to a SID 
and then invalidated by a policy reload.  In contrast, trawcon can occur 
for file contexts read from the filesystem that were never valid under 
any policy loaded into the kernel since boot.

Okay, I happened to find a way to do this a little differently (taking
a suggestion from Stephen about avoiding the need to do strcmp()) so
now it is actually easy to move them at the end. But I didn't expect
to get a more liberal reply from Steve (who is usually more strict
about this) than you :)

I tried to find a similar reproducer as for trawcon, but it doesn't
seem to be possible to do that without reloading the policy. I will
just add a note.

Yeah, the audit record format is a delicate subject with lots of
disagreement between Steve and I.  I think you've seen some of that
since you've been involved in audit, but it goes back years.

The general rule that I've been sticking to is that new fields get
added to the end of the record.  There are exceptions, e.g. the config
records, but those exceptions are typically only given in the case of
a record format that is so irregular it really doesn't matter.
