security: create task_free security callback
Kees Cook [Wed, 21 Dec 2011 20:17:03 +0000 (12:17 -0800)]
The current LSM interface to cred_free is not sufficient for allowing
an LSM to track the life and death of a task. This patch adds the
task_free hook so that an LSM can clean up resources on task death.
