Subject[GIT PULL] SELinux patches for v5.7
Hi Linus,

We've got twenty SELinux patches for the v5.7 merge window, the
highlights are below. Beyond the highlights there a couple of things
I want to call out in this pull request: a merge conflict, and a
maintainer screw-up.

The merge conflict is in security/selinux/hooks.c and is against a
binder fs name fix we sent during the v5.6-rcX cycle; the fixup is
trivial but if you need me to fix it, let me know. The maintainer
screw-up deals with the second patch from the top of the pull request,
the NFS fix. The screw-up isn't the fact that this is a NFS patch, we
talked to the NFS guys and they are okay with it. The issue is that
the commit date is today - during the merge window - which doesn't
reflect the testing the patch received. The reality is that I merged
this patch back on March 12th, and it has been part of our testing
ever since, but when putting this pull request together I noticed that
I had dropped the subject line from the patch when I was merging it.
Not wanting a malformed commit, I popped the top two patches from the
stack and restored the missing subject line; this had the unfortunate
side effect of making it look like the two top patches were just
merged today - my apologies.

Regardless, here are the highlights:

- Deprecate setting /sys/fs/selinux/checkreqprot to 1. This flag was
originally created to deal with legacy userspace and the
READ_IMPLIES_EXEC personality flag. We changed the default from 1 to
0 back in Linux v4.4 and now we are taking the next step of
deprecating it, at some point in the future we will take the final
step of rejecting 1.
- Allow kernfs symlinks to inherit the SELinux label of the parent
directory. In order to preserve backwards compatibility this is
protected by the genfs_seclabel_symlinks SELinux policy capability.
- Optimize how we store filename transitions in the kernel, resulting
in some significant improvements to policy load times.
- Do a better job calculating our internal hash table sizes which
resulted in additional policy load improvements and likely general
SELinux performance improvements as well.
- Remove the unused initial SIDs (labels) and improve how we handle
initial SIDs.
- Enable per-file labeling for the bpf filesystem.
- Ensure that we properly label NFS v4.2 filesystems to avoid a
temporary unlabeled condition.
- Add some missing XFS quota command types to the SELinux quota access controls.
- Fix a problem where we were not updating the seq_file position index
correctly in selinuxfs.
- We consolidate some duplicated code into helper functions.
- A number of list to array conversions.
- Update Stephen Smalley's email address in MAINTAINERS.
