Description Eric Paris 2007-04-04 17:56:21 UTC

selinux fs uses set i_ino for most of its inodes.  The exceptions are
directories and those inside avc/*

since the i_ino for those is determined by a global counter it is possible they
will colide with the ranges specified for booleans or initial_sids

We need to explicitly set all i_ino in order to make sure collision isn't possible.
