status->sequence is a sequence number for the seqlock logic, not the
policy sequence number. You likely want avc_policy_seqno() instead,
although I can't tell without seeing the user of this function.
Regardless, as with the other patch, there needs to be an in-tree user
and a LSM hook interface to use this outside of the SELinux code
itself.
