ima_inode_setxattr() and ima_inode_removexattr() hooks are called before an
operation is performed. Thus, ima_reset_appraise_flags() should not be
called there, as flags might be unnecessarily reset if the operation is
denied.

This patch introduces the post hooks ima_inode_post_setxattr() and
ima_inode_post_removexattr(), and adds the call to
ima_reset_appraise_flags() in the new functions.

Now you're calling ima_protect_xattr() twice for each setxattr.
Is that safe? Is it performant? Does it matter?

Hi Casey

I would expect that this does not have a significant impact on
the performance (it is just a strcmp on the xattr name).

The first time the call to ima_protect_xattr() prevents the
security.ima from being inappropriately modified.  The second time it
resets the cached status flags.  From a performance perspective,
unnecessarily re-calcuating the file hash is worse than rechecking the
security xattr string.
