[PATCH] integrity: Fix possible multiple allocation in integrity_inode_get()

From: Tianjia Zhang
Date: Tue May 30 2023 - 08:15:11 EST

When integrity_inode_get() is querying and inserting the cache, there
is a conditional race in the concurrent environment.

Query iint within the read-lock. If there is no result, allocate iint
first and insert the iint cache in the write-lock protection. When the
iint cache does not exist, and when multiple execution streams come at
the same time, there will be a race condition, and multiple copies of
iint will be allocated at the same time, and then put into the cache
one by one under the write-lock protection.

This is mainly because the red-black tree insertion does not perform
duplicate detection. This is not the desired result, when this
happens, the repeated allocation should be freed and the existing
iint cache should be returned.
