What I want to do is trace the implementation of SELinux; its modules;
initiation; hooks etc. in Fedora.  The Kernel.org version I have doesn't
show SELinux coding.

I have been running SELinux in the last few versions of Fedora in
permissive or disabled mode just to get it out of the way.  In F11, I
thought I would climb the learning curve and begin to use it.

There are many good tutorials and manuals out there, not the least of
which are Fedora's own SELinux manual and the NSA's report.  However
none of them explain very well what is happening in the kernel.  At
least not as well as they could if I could see the code with my own
eyes.
