Currently, function apparmor_secid_to_secctx returns always zero,
no matter if the value returned by aa_label_asxprint is negative
(which implies that an error has occurred).

Notice that *seclen* is of type u32 (32 bits, unsigned), and a
less-than-zero comparison of an unsigned value is never true.

Fix this by temporarily storing the value returned by aa_label_asxprint
into a variable of type int (signed) for its further evaluation.

Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1468514 ("Unsigned compared against 0")
Fixes: c092921219d2 ("apparmor: add support for mapping secids and using
secctxes")
