Please unblock policycoreutils/1.32-2
This is a release that prevents running setfiles with no file
path (the file path is a required argument to setfiles) if no
writeable SELinux capable filesystems exist on the target
machine. This came up when someone tried to install SELinux o0n a
machine with just reiserfs filesystems, and reiserfs does not support
the xattr functionality SELinux uses for setting security labels on
filesystem object. The fix is just a check to see if any fileststems
were found, and issueing a diagnostic if not; this is just a shell
This upload also changes diagnostic messages (no valid FS),
changes an audit2allow error message to not mention "rpm" packages,
updates a man page, and is wholly low risk.
This does not impact the debian installer.

* Bug fix: "policycoreutils: fixfiles should warn if no suitable fs
found", thanks to David Härdeman. This was a missing simple check --
now fixfiles does not attempt to run setfiles on an empty set if it
did not find a valid directory. Low risk, simple test. (Closes: #397198).
* Bug fix: "policycoreutils: audit2allow line 135 should refer to debian
package", thanks to Russell Coker. It now asks the users to install
the checkpolicy package, not the chckpolicy rpm package.
* Bug fix: "policycoreutils: patch for semanage.8", thanks to Russell
Coker. This adds some options that had been missing from the man page.
* Bug fix: "policycoreutils: fixfiles excludes reiserfs", thanks to
David Härdeman. Actually, it should: Support for atomic inode labeling
has not been implemented in reiserfs, so there is no SELinux support
for it. This is documented in selinux-doc. Reiser just won't label
files when they are created making it basically worthless for xattr
labeling. (Closes: #397196).
