Merged into selinux/next with this patch description, and your
sign-off (I had to munge the description a bit based on the thread).
Are you okay with this, especially your sign-off?

selinux: use GFP_NOWAIT in the AVC kmem_caches
There is a strange __GFP_NOMEMALLOC usage pattern in SELinux,
specifically GFP_ATOMIC | __GFP_NOMEMALLOC which doesn't make much
sense. GFP_ATOMIC on its own allows to access memory reserves while
__GFP_NOMEMALLOC dictates we cannot use memory reserves. Replace this
with the much more sane GFP_NOWAIT in the AVC code as we can tolerate
memory allocation failures in that code.
