I think that "secid" is what has been chosen for security identifiers
outside of the core SELinux code to to avoid confusion with session
identifiers. Lingering references to sid or ctxid are going to be
converted to secid.

You want to retain the static inlines, and just update their contents,
not replace them with embedded #ifdefs. And this could be a direct
assignment, right?
