1.105.1. RHBA-2010:0183: bug fix update

An updated libsepol package that resolves a policy issue is now available.
libsepol provides an API for the manipulation of SELinux binary policies. It is used by checkpolicy (the policy compiler) and similar tools, and programs such as load_policy, which must perform specific transformations on binary policies (for example, customizing policy boolean settings).
This updated libsepol package addresses the following issue:
* newer SELinux kernels have access checks that the shipping SELinux policy package does not understand. The kernel currently denies these access checks by default. This updated libsepol package allows the checkpolicy and selinux-policy packages to build policy that tells the kernel to "Allow" unknown access. (BZ#531228)
All SELinux users should install this updated package which resolves this issue.
