We have not done a full relabel on upgrade,since it could take potentially a
very long time.  We could just drop the /.autorelabel file in preupgrade which
would trigger the relabel.  I have not heard of other people having SELinux
labeling issues on upgrade, I wish we had the audit.log to see what the
problem was.
