Not that I like SELinux per se, but AFAIK the code is open and free,
which means that it can be inspected (and it is very likely that it was
inspected), so I believe we should do more investigation before asking
for the removal of what might be a useful feature to some people.

BTW, and I will double-check this when I have time, but I believe it is
present in linux-libre.

Anyway, just my 2 cents.
