Subject: [PATCH v3 2/2] proc: ensure security hook is called after exec

Smack needs its security_task_to_inode() hook to be called when a task
execs a new executable. Store the self_exec_id of the task and call the
hook via pid_update_inode() whenever the exec_id changes.

Signed-off-by: Stephen Brennan <stephen.s.brennan@...cle.com>
---

As discussed on the v2 of the patch, this should allow Smack to receive a
security_task_to_inode() call only when the uid/gid changes, or when the task
execs a new binary. I have verified that this doesn't change the performance of
the patch set, and that we do fall out of RCU walk on tasks which have recently
exec'd.
