3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

From: Paul Moore <p...@paul-moore.com>

commit ef28df55ac27e1e5cd122e19fa311d886d47a756 upstream.

The syzbot/syzkaller automated tests found a problem in
security_context_to_sid_core() during early boot (before we load the
SELinux policy) where we could potentially feed context strings without
NUL terminators into the strcmp() function.

We already guard against this during normal operation (after the SELinux
policy has been loaded) by making a copy of the context strings and
explicitly adding a NUL terminator to the end.  The patch extends this
protection to the early boot case (no loaded policy) by moving the context
copy earlier in security_context_to_sid_core().
