sysfs: Add labeling support for sysfs
This patch adds a setxattr handler to the file, directory, and symlink inode_operations structures for sysfs. The patch uses hooks introduced in the previous patch to handle the getting and setting of security information for the sysfs inodes. As was suggested by Eric Biederman the struct iattr in the sysfs_dirent structure has been replaced by a structure which contains the iattr, secdata and secdata length to allow the changes to persist in the event that the inode representing the sysfs_dirent is evicted. Because sysfs only stores this information when a change is made all the optional data is moved into one dynamically allocated field. This patch addresses an issue where SELinux was denying virtd access to the PCI configuration entries in sysfs. The lack of setxattr handlers for sysfs required that a single label be assigned to all entries in sysfs. Granting virtd access to every entry in sysfs is not an acceptable solution so fine grained labeling of sysfs is required such that individual entries can be labeled appropriately.
