Remember, anaconda runs in permissive mode.  So any "denials" are just
"this would have been denied", not "this was denied".  Mostly because
we're in a very strange environment and things would blow up horribly
otherwise ;)   But we have to have policy somewhat loaded as otherwise,
the file contexts aren't known to the kernel for setting the xattrs.

selinux=0 is needed because the policy package didn't have correct
requirements on things it ran in its scripts.  I've hopefully got that
fixed up today, but Chris saw something else weird when he tried an
install a little bit ago.  So we'll be taking a look at that.
