usb, signal, security: only pass the cred, not the secid, to kill_pid_info_as_cred and security_task_kill
commit d178bc3a708f39cbfefc3fab37032d3f2511b4ec ("user namespace: usb: make usb urbs user namespace aware (v2)") changed kill_pid_info_as_uid to kill_pid_info_as_cred, saving and passing a cred structure instead of uids. Since the secid can be obtained from the cred, drop the secid fields from the usb_dev_state and async structures, and drop the secid argument to kill_pid_info_as_cred. Replace the secid argument to security_task_kill with the cred. Update SELinux, Smack, and AppArmor to use the cred, which avoids the need for Smack and AppArmor to use a secid at all in this hook. Further changes to Smack might still be required to take full advantage of this change, since it should now be possible to perform capability checking based on the supplied cred. The changes to Smack and AppArmor have only been compile-tested.
