Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/3] Smack: fix behavior of smack_inode_listsecurity

Quoting Konstantin Khlebnikov (k.khlebnikov@...sung.com):
> Security operation ->inode_listsecurity is used for generating list of
> available extended attributes for syscall listxattr. Currently it's used
> only in nfs4 or if filesystem doesn't provide i_op->listxattr.
> 
> The list is the set of NULL-terminated names, one after the other.
> This method must include zero byte at the and into result.
> 
> Also this function must return length even if string does not fit into
> output buffer or it is NULL, see similar method in selinux and man listxattr.
