Because of the overlayfs getxattr recursion, the incoming inode fails
to update the selinux sid resulting in avc denials being reported
against a target context of u:object_r:unlabeled:s0.

Solution is to respond to the XATTR_NOSECURITY flag in get xattr
method that calls the __vfs_getxattr handler instead so that the
context can be read in, rather than being denied with an -EACCES
when vfs_getxattr handler is called.

For the use case where access is to be blocked by the security layer.

The path then would be security(dentry) ->
__vfs_getxattr({dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) ->
handler->get({dentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) ->
__vfs_getxattr({realdentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) ->
lower_handler->get({realdentry...XATTR_NOSECURITY}) which
would report back through the chain data and success as expected,
the logging security layer at the top would have the data to
determine the access permissions and report back to the logs and
the caller that the target context was blocked.

For selinux this would solve the cosmetic issue of the selinux log
and allow audit2allow to correctly report the rule needed to address
the access problem.

Check impure, opaque, origin & meta xattr with no sepolicy audit
(using __vfs_getxattr) since these operations are internal to
overlayfs operations and do not disclose any data.  This became
an issue for credential override off since sys_admin would have
been required by the caller; whereas would have been inherently
present for the creator since it performed the mount.

This is a change in operations since we do not check in the new
ovl_do_getxattr function if the credential override is off or not.
Reasoning is that the sepolicy check is unnecessary overhead,
especially since the check can be expensive.

Because for override credentials off, this affects _everyone_ that
underneath performs private xattr calls without the appropriate
sepolicy permissions and sys_admin capability.  Providing blanket
support for sys_admin would be bad for all possible callers.

For the override credentials on, this will affect only the mounter,
should it lack sepolicy permissions. Not considered a security
problem since mounting by definition has sys_admin capabilities,
but sepolicy contexts would still need to be crafted.

It should be noted that there is precedence, __vfs_getxattr is used
in other filesystems for their own internal trusted xattr management.

v17 - rebase and add inode argument to __Vfs_getxattr

v16 - rebase and merge internal getxattr operations patch

v15 - revert to v13 because xattr_gs_args rejected.

v14 - rebase to use xattr_gs_args.

v13 - rebase to use __vfs_getxattr flags option.

v12 - Added back to patch series as get xattr with flag option.

v11 - Squashed out of patch series and replaced with per-thread flag
      solution.

v10 - Added to patch series as __get xattr method.
