Grr. And I quote:

Security table (IP_NF_SECURITY) [Y/n/?] (NEW) ?

This option adds a `security' table to iptables, for use
with Mandatory Access Control (MAC) policy.

If unsure, say N.

why the heck does this new config option apparently default to 'Y'? It's a
new option, so no old users can need it, and the docs even say you should
say 'N' unless you know what you're doing.

(Same issue with the IPv6 version).

Don't do this.
