Subject: [PATCH 1/2] CRED: Fix BUG() upon security_cred_alloc_blank() failure

From: Tetsuo Handa <penguin-kernel@...ove.SAKURA.ne.jp>

In cred_alloc_blank() since 2.6.32, abort_creds(new) is called with
new->security == NULL and new->magic == 0 when security_cred_alloc_blank()
returns an error.  As a result, BUG() will be triggered if SELinux is enabled
or CONFIG_DEBUG_CREDENTIALS=y.

If CONFIG_DEBUG_CREDENTIALS=y, BUG() is called from __invalid_creds() because
cred->magic == 0.  Failing that, BUG() is called from selinux_cred_free()
because selinux_cred_free() is not expecting cred->security == NULL.  This does
not affect smack_cred_free(), tomoyo_cred_free() or apparmor_cred_free().

Fix these bugs by

(1) Set new->magic before calling security_cred_alloc_blank().

(2) Handle null cred->security in creds_are_invalid() and selinux_cred_free().
