Copying up xattrs is solely based on the security xattr name. For finer

hook definition, allowing decisions to be based on the xattr content as

What do you think about:

                      error = security_inode_copy_up_xattr(name, NULL, 0);

and then later...

                      error = security_inode_copy_up_xattr(name, value, size);

I am asking because overlayfs uses mnt_idmap(path->mnt) and you
have used nop_mnt_idmap inside evm hook.
this does not look right to me?

So it's relevant if they interact with xattrs that care about the
idmapping and that's POSIX ACLs and fscaps. And only if they perform
permission checks such as posix_acl_update_mode() or something. IOW, it
depends on what exactly EVM is doing.

In 2/5 we are reading the value of security.evm to look at its contents.

IIRC, I already added custom security_*() hooks specifically for POSIX
ACLs as they can't be retrieved through vfs_xattr*() helpers anymore.
