I'm a bad maintainer. I should have done something with this patch.
Adding sds, the only other person who ever actually maintains this code,
to the thread.

__initcall() functions aren't serialized? I guess that would be bad and
we would need a lock. I wonder if there are other places I assumed
__initcall() would be serialized (note that all of these call sites are
built in and not modules if that makes a difference)

I'll probably just rip all of that ssid, tsid, tclass, perms, stuff out.
If all these years noone uses callbacks for anything other than reset
why do we have it at all. Probably more simplification we can do around
avc_update_node() too...

Stephen, thoughts on ripping stuff out?
