    audit: replace getname()/putname() hacks with reference counters · 55422d0b
    Paul Moore authored
    In order to ensure that filenames are not released before the audit
    subsystem is done with the strings there are a number of hacks built
    into the fs and audit subsystems around getname() and putname().  To
    say these hacks are "ugly" would be kind.
    This patch removes the filename hackery in favor of a more
    conventional reference count based approach.  The diffstat below tells
    most of the story; lots of audit/fs specific code is replaced with a
    traditional reference count based approach that is easily understood,
    even by those not familiar with the audit and/or fs subsystems.
