The SELinux stuff now makes it extremely easy to report problems; you
can do it just with one click on a button in sealert. Please do this for
all SELinux alerts you see, rather than filtering through this list
first, we want to get _all_ the reports you see. The SELinux maintainers
are very fast about looking at reports and taking appropriate action.
