My comments were intentionally made on the SELinux specific code and
not the LSM generic code/hooks. As the LSM hook code must not make
any assumptions about the underlying LSM implementations, it may make
sense to have two different hooks. However as far as the SELinux code
is concerned I would rather keep the access controls in one function
as mentioned above. From a purely selfish SELinux perspective I would
prefer a single hook, but if others feel two hooks are better, that's
fine with me too.
