Here is a patch against -test10 that adds an option for the security.
namespace (controlled by a configure option), which is used by SELinux
to store it's security labels.  I created this patch based off Tad
Glines' (tadglines@xxxxxxxxxxx) 2.4 patch
(http://www.glines.com/xfs.patch.bz2).  Please critique this, and if its
ok, please consider for inclusion.

I was warned on #xfs that this may break IRIX compatability, so there is
a note in the Kconfig.  However Tad says that the security. attributes
will show up in the user namespace on a standard XFS linux kernel, but I
didn't verify.  He also mentioned that xfsdump and xfsrestore would need
to be patched to support this.
