policy_update() invokes begin_current_label_crit_section(), which
returns a reference of the updated aa_label object to "label" with
increased refcount.

When policy_update() returns, "label" becomes invalid, so the refcount
should be decreased to keep refcount balanced.

The reference counting issue happens in one exception handling path of
policy_update(). When aa_may_manage_policy() returns not NULL, the
refcnt increased by begin_current_label_crit_section() is not decreased,
causing a refcnt leak.

Fix this issue by jumping to "end_section" label when
aa_may_manage_policy() returns not NULL.
