    I agree that enabling security-aware applications to separately label
    specific keys is desirable, so I'd suggest retaining that support, not
    dropping it. We ultimately need the same support for all kernel objects
    (we lost it for sockets and System V IPC when the old SELinux API had to
    be dropped).
