Hello. Sorry for the delay in responding, comments inline ...

I don't understand the leak in this case? If d_alloc_name() fails on
a partially constructed /sys/fs/selinux/avc directory the previously
allocated dentry/inodes are not lost or leaked, d_alloc_name()
attached them to the parent dentry.

Yes, in this case it does look like we are missing a call to dput().
Would you like to submit a patch to fix this as well as the others in
selinuxfs.c?
