If user get root access and calls security.selinux setxattr() with an
embedded NUL on a file and then if some process performs a getxattr()
on that file with a length greater than the actual length of the string,
it would result in a panic.

To fix this, add the actual length of the string to the security context
instead of the length passed by the userspace process.
