Subject: [PATCH] evm: checking if removexattr is not a NULL

commit a67adb997419fb53540d4a4f79c6471c60bc69b6 upstream.

The following lines of code produce a kernel oops.

fd = socket(PF_FILE, SOCK_STREAM|SOCK_CLOEXEC|SOCK_NONBLOCK, 0);
fchmod(fd, 0666);

This happens because sockets do not define the removexattr operation.
Before removing the xattr, verify the removexattr function pointer is
not NULL.
