Subject[PATCH] selinux: stricter parsing in mls_context_to_sid()
From
mls_context_to_sid incorrectly accepted MLS context strings that are
followed by a dash and trailing garbage.

Before this change, the following command works:

# mount -t tmpfs -o 'context=system_u:object_r:tmp_t:s0-s0:c0-BLAH' \
none mount

After this change, it fails with the following error message in dmesg:

SELinux: security_context_str_to_sid(system_u:object_r:tmp_t:s0-s0:c0-BLAH)
failed for (dev tmpfs, type tmpfs) errno=-22

This is not an important bug; but it is a small quirk that was useful for
exploiting a vulnerability in fusermount.

This patch does not change the behavior when the policy does not have MLS
enabled.
