SELinux patent time bomb?

See http://lwn.net/Articles/2376/ .

According to LWN (and other websites which have taken LWN as a
source), there may be a patent-time bomb affecting SELinux: Secure
Computing Corporation, who wrote a significant part of SELinux, holds
patents on it, but doesn't give a clear-cut license, only a
retractable statement that they don't intend to sue anybody except a
few usage classes.
