SELinux: remove current object class and permission validation mechanism
Removes the current SELinux object class and permission validation code, as the current code makes it impossible to change or remove object classes and permissions on a running system. Additionally, the current code does not actually validate that the classes and permissions are correct, but instead merely validates that they do not change between policy reloads.
