Is SELinux built into the linux-libre kernel as well?

I can't answer for the libre-linux team but, my understanding that it is
hard coded into the kernel  sometime in 2.6, where before it was
modularized.

It can be turned "off' in the conf file, but is ever present.

In FreeBSD it is called 'Trusted BSD'

Even though SELinux is free to Linux so was the Horse at the gates of Troy.

It is also in the news
