Subject: [PATCH] lib: Add selinux=0 to default kernel command line.

SELinux exists in a very disturbed state if it is enabled at
boot time, but no policy is loaded.  In particular, it messes
up the security.selinux extended attributes on files in a
not-very-useful way.

We can't enable SELinux because we don't know what policy
can or should be loaded.  Therefore it's best to disable it
completely.
