Yep, I've been tracking Casey's work on this since the first patch and sending
comments when appropriate. I'm going to take a look at the latest rev of the
patch and if anything looks awry I'll be sure to let Casey know.

The only real wart that still remains from the original patch is the code in
smk_cipso_doi() which has a nice comment at the top saying that Paul and
Casey need to work out an appropriate interface between NetLabel and SMACK.
We punted on it before because SMACK's future was still a bit uncertain and
SELinux has no need for an interface like this at present. Now that SMACK
looks to be queued up for 2.6.24 it's time to revisit this discussion.
