CVE-2015-1350

Buglink: https://launchpad.net/bugs/1415636

Currently, notify_change() clears capabilities or IMA attributes by
calling security_inode_killpriv() before calling into ->setattr. Thus it
happens before any other permission checks in inode_change_ok() and user
is thus allowed to trigger clearing of capabilities or IMA attributes
for any file he can look up e.g. by calling chown for that file. This is
unexpected and can lead to user DoSing a system.

Fix the problem by calling security_inode_killpriv() at the end of
inode_change_ok() instead of from notify_change(). At that moment we are
sure user has permissions to do the requested change.

Same reasons as for the Xenial submission.
