selinux: change the handling of unknown classes
If allow_unknown==deny, SELinux treats an undefined kernel security class as an error condition rather than as a typical permission denial and thus does not allow permissions on undefined classes even when in permissive mode. Change the SELinux logic so that this case is handled as a typical permission denial, subject to the usual permissive mode and permissive domain handling. Also drop the 'requested' argument from security_compute_av() and helpers as it is a legacy of the original security server interface and is unused. Changes: - Handle permissive domains consistently by moving up the test for a permissive domain. - Make security_compute_av_user() consistent with security_compute_av(); the only difference now is that security_compute_av() performs mapping between the kernel-private class and permission indices and the policy values. In the userspace case, this mapping is handled by libselinux. - Moved avd_init inside the policy lock. Based in part on a patch by Paul Moore <paul.moore@hp.com>.
