Subject: [PATCH RFC v3 0/5] LSM: Add and use a hook for side-channel safety checks

v3: get_task_cred wasn't a good choice due to refcounts.
    Use lower level protection instead
v2: SELinux access policy corrected.
    Use real_cred instead of cred.

This patchset provide a mechanism by which a security module
can advise the system about potential side-channel vulnerabilities.
If security_safe_sidechannel() returns 0 the security modules do
not know of any data that would be subject to a side-channel
attack. If the security module maintains data that it believes
may be susceptible to a side-channel attack it will return -EACCES.

Simple hooks are provided for SELinux and Smack. A new security
module is provided to make determinations regarding traditional
task attributes, including user IDs, capability sets and namespaces.
