Subject: sysvinit: Does not load SELinux policy
Package: sysvinit
Version: 2.88dsf-2
Severity: important

I have a sid system with SELinux enabled (custom kernel, with an initrd).
sysvinit 2.88 from experimental does not mount /selinux or load the 
SELinux policy on boot.

With sysvinit 2.87dsf-10, all is fine.  I get messages like the 
following on screen immediately before "INIT: version 2.86 booting"
type=1404 audit(1268846390.590:2): enforcing=1 old_enforcing=0 
auid=4294967295 ses=4294967295
type=1403 audit(1268846390.909:3): policy loaded auid=4294967295 

With sysvinit 2.88dsf-2 there are no such messages and policy is never loaded.
