Subject: Re: [GIT PULL] SafeSetID LSM changes for v5.8

I amended the author on the lone commit in this pull request. For some
reason I was thinking using the "From:" line in the commit body was
how I should make things show up as Thomas as the author and me as the
committer, but looks like that’s not true.

I also removed my own Signed-off-by line from the pull request body
and included it in the commit instead of the Reviewed-by line.


The following changes since commit 3d77e6a8804abcc0504c904bd6e5cdf3a5cf8162:

  security: Add LSM hooks to set*gid syscalls (2020-06-14 10:52:02 -0700)

Add additional LSM hooks for SafeSetID

SafeSetID is capable of making allow/deny decisions for set*uid calls
on a system, and we want to add similar functionality for set*gid
calls. The work to do that is not yet complete, so probably won't make
it in for v5.8, but we are looking to get this simple patch in for
v5.8 since we have it ready. We are planning on the rest of the work
for extending the SafeSetID LSM being merged during the v5.9 merge

This patch was sent to the security mailing list and there were no objections.
