[PATCH] SELinux: default labeling of MLS field
Implement kernel labeling of the MLS (multilevel security) field of security contexts for files which have no existing MLS field. This is to enable upgrades of a system from non-MLS to MLS without performing a full filesystem relabel including all of the mountpoints, which would be quite painful for users. With this patch, with MLS enabled, if a file has no MLS field, the kernel internally adds an MLS field to the in-core inode (but not to the on-disk file). This MLS field added is the default for the superblock, allowing per-mountpoint control over the values via fixed policy or mount options. This patch has been tested by enabling MLS without relabeling its filesystem, and seems to be working correctly.
