Add a new hook func_query_vfs to query an LSM module (such as
SELinux) with the intention of finding whether or not it is enabled
or perhaps supports some functionality.

NFS stores security labels for file system objects and SElinux
or any other LSM module can query those objects. But it's
wasteful to do so when no security enforcement is taking place.
Using a new API call of security_func_query_vfs() and asking if

As I mentioned earlier, this is a sub-optimal implementation.
Instead of adding a func_query_vfs() hook add a field to
security_hook_list and have the LSM declare the "features"
it supports there. security_add_hooks() can gather the "features"
for the whole system into a single mask. security_func_query_vfs()
can then just return that mask.

This is the wrong granularity for the task at hand.
You don't care if an LSM supports vfs xattrs. You care if
the LSM provides an xattr that may be propagated by NFS
for the purpose of mandatory access control. An LSM that
provides time-of-day controls may use xattrs that are
meaningless to NFS.

Seems we lost something here.
