    I get the impression from customers that SELinux is so painful to
    configure correctly that most of them disable it. In theory, LSM +
    something like AppArmour provides a much simpler security model for
    normal human beings who want some level of configuration. Also,
    the current SELinux config in RH is starting to have a measureable
    performance impact. I'm not sure this particular battle of the
    security models is quite over from a real user perspective.
