in the debian kernel builds (as arranged i believe by
manoj), the default option for the selinux kernel module is
that means it's switched off.
libselinux1 has a function which will detect this.
all patches in all programs and all utilities and all services
utilise this function, and disable all and any functionality
related to and pertaining to selinux.
at no time and on any account and under no circumstances will selinux
cause any loss of functionality, loss of speed or any other perceived
or actual "detrimental" effects or side-effects when the kernel option
"selinux=0" is set.
if this isn't clear and explicit enough, do let me know and
i'll be happy to come round with a big stick with nails in
it to help make the point more clearly.
