[DSE-Dev] Bug#707227: mach is using deprecated /selinux directory

Package: mach
Version: 0.9.1-3.1
Severity: normal


Since Wheezy, the selinuxfs mountpoint is mounted under /sys/fs/selinux
and not under /selinux anymore.

In the following days I'm planning to upload a newer version of
libselinux that will completely drop that directory.

I'm seeing in the code that mach is checking for the presence of the
/selinux directory. It should probably also look for the presence of the
new mountpoint (/sys/fs/selinux) at the same time.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
