Boot a second time and it will be fine, I have met with this several times.

BTW, I find that one must have selinux=enforcing when installing
kernel. I started with selinux=0, and changed /etc/sysconfig/selinux
to permissive, then reboot to single mode, relabel, setenforce 1, then
install the kernel, change /etc/sysconfig/selinux to enforcing and
reboot: that fixes boot problem for ever.

I have a problem that how to specify selinux=permissive at grub
prompt, when /etc/sysconfig/selinux=enforcing?
