Merge branch 'next-general' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jmorris/linux-security
Pull general security layer updates from James Morris: - Convert security hooks from list to hlist, a nice cleanup, saving about 50% of space, from Sargun Dhillon. - Only pass the cred, not the secid, to kill_pid_info_as_cred and security_task_kill (as the secid can be determined from the cred), from Stephen Smalley. - Close a potential race in kernel_read_file(), by making the file unwritable before calling the LSM check (vs after), from Kees Cook. * 'next-general' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jmorris/linux-security: security: convert security hooks to use hlist exec: Set file unwritable before LSM check usb, signal, security: only pass the cred, not the secid, to kill_pid_info_as_cred and security_task_kill
