[PATCH] selinux: change file_alloc_security to use GFP_KERNEL
Stephen Smalley [Wed, 1 Feb 2006 11:05:55 +0000 (03:05 -0800)]
This patch changes the SELinux file_alloc_security function to use
GFP_KERNEL rather than GFP_ATOMIC; the use of GFP_ATOMIC appears to be a
remnant of when this function was being called with the files_lock spinlock
held, and is no longer necessary.  Please apply.
