Bug Description

The attached patch add support for loading the SELinux policy from within /sbin/init.
It is based on the patch from Russell Coker, but I added an explicit --enable-selinux configure switch, which defaults to off.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?

Let's bring Russell into the loop then.

Russell, I forwarded your SELinux patch for upstart to be included upstream.
Would you be willing to sign such a Copyright Assignment for this
(even it is a real PITA).

Scott, I don't know the details anymore for how to do this. Could you
help Russell how to proceed given he is fine to sign the Copyright
Assignment?

Thanks,
Michael
