Then why do you keep making demonstrably false statements about it? You
started off saying that your hardware firewall provided sufficient
protection. Then you kept screaming that you knew all about how it
worked even as multiple people tried in vain to explain that SELinux was
there to help in cases that the firewall wouldn't help with. More
recently, you've claimed that it works, mechanically, just like MSDOS
Flu-shot+. To those who actually know what SELinux is about, neither of
those is true.

Until that other Mike McCarty stops posting crap about SELinux.

Since the file contexts are required by the kernel, I see no reason
(none) that ls shouldn't be able to show them to me based on a command
line parameter. Otherwise, it's not "taking up cycles" as you have said.
