Way to put some pressure on me performing :) Trying some of the things
in the selinux-faq it is definitely relevant and important hence my want
to add it as a section since there are points there that will solve
questions quickly.  Not the whole lot but some of it.

I will need significant help with it hence the request for feedback.
