[PATCH] apparmor: don't try to replace stale label in ptrace access check




As a comment above begin_current_label_crit_section() explains,
begin_current_label_crit_section() must run in sleepable context because
when label_is_stale() is true, aa_replace_current_label() runs, which uses
prepare_creds(), which can sleep.
Until now, the ptrace access check (which runs with a task lock held)
violated this rule.

Also add a might_sleep() assertion to begin_current_label_crit_section(),
because asserts are less likely to be ignored than comments.

I have tested that just the might_sleep() yells a lot, and adding the
rest of the patch stops the yelling.
