[PATCH] Smack: Restore the smackfsdef mount option and add missing prefixes

From: Casey Schaufler <casey at schaufler-ca.com>

The 5.1 mount system rework changed the smackfsdef mount option
to smackfsdefault. This fixes the regression by making smackfsdef
treated the same way as smackfsdefault.

Also fix the smack_param_specs[] to have "smack" prefixes on all the names.
This isn't visible to a user unless they either:

 (a) Try to mount a filesystem that's converted to the internal mount API
     and that implements the ->parse_monolithic() context operation - and
     only then if they call security_fs_context_parse_param() rather than

     There are no examples of this upstream yet, but nfs will probably want
     to do this for nfs2 or nfs3.

 (b) Use fsconfig() to configure the filesystem - in which case
     security_fs_context_parse_param() will be called.

This issue is that smack_sb_eat_lsm_opts() checks for the "smack" prefix on
the options, but smack_fs_context_parse_param() does not.

Fixes: 2febd254adc4 ("smack: Implement filesystem context security hooks")
