Hello Linus

Sorry for the 2nd pull request, but this is a fairly important fix
for the privilege handling of smackfs in the face of io_uring. The
novel use of kernel threads in io_uring invalidated an long standing
assumption regarding the privilege of kernel threads. The fix is
simple and safe. It was provided by Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
and has been tested.

The following changes since commit 9b0072e2b2b588ad75c94f2c6e6c52c8f4bd2657:

  security/smack: remove unused varible 'rc' (2020-11-16 17:26:31 -0800)

That is not a tag.

And I really want signed tags for non-kernel.org pull requests.

Digging at that repo, I do find the tag, it's
'tags/Smack-for-5.11-io_uring-fix' and it has a proper pgp signature
from you.

So I pulled that one. But please don't make me search for these things.
