smackfs: check for allocation failures in smk_set_access()
smackfs: check for allocation failures in smk_set_access() While adding a new subject/object pair to smack_list, smk_set_access() didn't check the return of kzalloc(). This patch changes smk_set_access() to return 0 or -ENOMEM, based on kzalloc()'s return. It also updates its caller, smk_write_load(), to check for smk_set_access()'s return, given it is no longer a void return function.
