Yes in squeeze, selinuxfs is mounted /selinux. On wheezy (and later) it
will first try to mount it on /sys/fs/selinux and then, if that
directory is not available, on /selinux as a fallback.

I the squeeze2anything case, the filesystem should still be mounted
in /selinux.

I was proposing moving to /sys/fs/selinux only for consistency with the
host machine. Maybe this could be postponed for later.
