I just yum updated, and got the latest testing kernel and policy 

  Install: kernel.i686 0:2.6.9-1.715_FC3
  Install: kernel-smp.i686 0:2.6.9-1.715_FC3
 Update: selinux-policy-targeted.noarch 0:1.17.30-2.58
 Update: selinux-policy-targeted-sources.noarch 0:1.17.30-2.58
Installing: kernel-smp 100 % done 1/160 
warning: /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts created as /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts.rpmnew
warning: /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.18 created as /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.18.rpmnew
Updating: selinux-policy-targeted 100 % done 2/160 

The FAQ says that the policy reloads automatically, and that a manual
relabel may be necessary.  It doesn't say anything about fixing the
filenames that were named .rpmnew.  How can the policy automatically
reload when the file isn't named correctly?

Since policy is tied to the kernel, what happens when I have more than
one kernel installed, and I boot an older one from grub?
