Smack: check for SMACK xattr validity in smack_inode_setxattr
Etienne Basset [Thu, 16 Apr 2009 21:58:42 +0000 (23:58 +0200)]
the following patch moves checks for SMACK xattr validity
from smack_inode_post_setxattr (which cannot return an error to the user)
to smack_inode_setxattr (which can return an error).
