Subject[PATCH 4.4 020/118] audit: fix exe_file access in audit_exe_compare
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mateusz Guzik <mguzik@redhat.com>

commit 5efc244346f9f338765da3d592f7947b0afdc4b5 upstream.

Prior to the change the function would blindly deference mm, exe_file
and exe_file->f_inode, each of which could have been NULL or freed.

Use get_task_exe_file to safely obtain stable exe_file.
