I did need to make some changes to bionic, e.g. adding the xattr system calls to SYSCALLS.TXT and re-generating the syscall wrapper functions via gensyscalls.py, adding support for the AT_SECURE auxv flag. Then I could port a subset of libselinux. To support the SELinux commands and -Z option, I modified the Android toolbox with support for ps -Z and ls -Z and added new commands to it for various SELinux tools. To date, I have added chcon, [gs]etenforce, [gs]etsebool, load_policy, restorecon, and runcon. -- Stephen Smalley National Security Agency -- This message was distributed to subscribers of the selinux mailing list.
