For IMA purposes, we want to be able to obtain the prepared secid in the
bprm structure before the credentials are committed. Add a cred_getsecid
hook that makes this possible.

Why do you want the secid? What are you planning to do with it?

Don't put a one-use function in the header file. Code it
directly in smack_cred_getsecid(). You're doubling the size
of the code and obscuring it doing it this way.

See the following patch - IMA policy allows the admin to restrict
appraisal to executables running in specific security contexts.
However, right now the check at application execution time ends up
using the current task creds before the new creds are committed.
