[GIT PULL] SELinux patches for 3.18 #2

Hi James,

One more small SELinux fix that should go into 3.18, if not during the merge
window then during the -rc period. Stephen wrote a nice patch description
which describes the problem, but it basically boils down to a race condition
that could result in a corrupted SELinux inode security blob/list. It is a
pretty difficult thing to reproduce, but the fix is obviously correct and
rather straightforward.

While I wouldn't expect any problems, for the sake of completeness I ran the
patch through the SELinux testsuite and it passed with flying colors.


P.S. Somewhat related, as should be obvious from the weekend's exchange with
Linus, I'm not going to be updating/merging the SELinux next branch beyond
v3.16 unless I start to see problems accepting new patches (either through
interface or logic changes).

The following changes since commit e7387395a07d788f80d011baa8ec6beba2bc747c:

selinux: normalize audit log formatting (2014-10-06 11:57:25 -0400)
