selinux: Convert isec->lock into a spinlock
Convert isec->lock from a mutex into a spinlock. Instead of holding the lock while sleeping in inode_doinit_with_dentry, set isec->initialized to LABEL_PENDING and release the lock. Then, when the sid has been determined, re-acquire the lock. If isec->initialized is still set to LABEL_PENDING, set isec->sid; otherwise, the sid has been set by another task (LABEL_INITIALIZED) or invalidated (LABEL_INVALID) in the meantime. This fixes a deadlock on gfs2 where * one task is in inode_doinit_with_dentry -> gfs2_getxattr, holds isec->lock, and tries to acquire the inode's glock, and * another task is in do_xmote -> inode_go_inval -> selinux_inode_invalidate_secctx, holds the inode's glock, and tries to acquire isec->lock.
