On the whole this looks fine to me. I am less comfortable than Paul
is regarding changes that happen elsewhere, so I would be more likely
to base in the rc-1 than Paul. More developers test with SELinux than
Smack. I am in the process of putting an appropriate GPG environment
together for 5.3.

The LSM infrastructure work I've been doing should still go through
James, as it has global implications.
