[GIT PULL] SELinux patches for v6.1

Hi Linus,

Six SELinux patches, all are simple and easily understood, but a list
of the highlights is below:

- Use 'grep -E' instead of 'egrep' in the SELinux policy install
script. Fun fact, this seems to be GregKH's *second* dedicated
SELinux patch since we transitioned to git (ignoring merges, the SPDX
stuff, and a trivial fs reference removal when lustre was yanked); the
first was back in 2011 when selinuxfs was placed in /sys/fs/selinux.
Oh, the memories ...

- Convert the SELinux policy boolean values to use signed integer
types throughout the SELinux kernel code. Prior to this we were using
a mix of signed and unsigned integers which was probably okay in this
particular case, but it is definitely not a good idea in general.

- Remove a reference to the SELinux runtime disable functionality in
/etc/selinux/config as we are in the process of deprecating that. See
for more background on this if you missed the previous notes on the

- Minor cleanups: remove unneeded variables and function parameter

Please merge for v6.1,
