[GIT PULL][SECURITY] general changes for v4.17

Please pull these changes for the security subsystem.

In this patchset:

- Convert security hooks from list to hlist, a nice cleanup, saving about 
50% of space, from Sargun Dhillon.

- Only pass the cred, not the secid, to kill_pid_info_as_cred and 
security_task_kill (as the secid can be determined from the cred), from 
Stephen Smalley.

- Close a potential race in kernel_read_file(), by making the file 
unwritable before calling the LSM check (vs after), from Kees Cook.

Once this is merged, I'll send separate pull requests for TPM, Integrity, 
Smack, and the new kernel lockdown feature.  All of these have been in 
linux-next and tested by the SELinux testsuite.
