SELinux: check open perms in dentry_open not inode_permission
Some operations, like searching a directory path or connecting a unix domain socket, make explicit calls into inode_permission. Our choices are to either try to come up with a signature for all of the explicit calls to inode_permission and do not check open on those, or to move the open checks to dentry_open where we know this is always an open operation. This patch moves the checks to dentry_open. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Acked-by: Stephen Smalley <sds@tycho.nsa.gov> Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>
