New selinux "feature" profile
Hi everyone,

Tomorrow I'll be adding a new selinux "feature" profile to the tree.
The idea behind this is like other features, it can be stacked on top of
other profiles and add a feature to that profile, in this case make it
selinux aware.

We've already done preliminary testing and found that it "works" for
hardened/linux/amd64, hardened/linux/amd64/no-multilib,
hardened/linux/x86, as well as some vanilla profiles. Works here means
"not without some kinks."

You'll see one or two new profiles appear. On amd64, you'll get two new


and on x86 you'll get


As the name suggests, these will stack selinux on top of their
respective hardened profile.

You are free to test these, but remember they'll be marked "dev" and not
"stable". Also these do NOT replace the current selinux profiles
selinux/v2refpolicy/*. In time, they be obsolete them, but for the time
being, the new feature profile is experimental.
