selinux: revert 102aefdda4d8275ce7d7100bc16c88c74272b260
Revert "selinux: consider filesystem subtype in policies" This reverts commit 102aefdda4d8275ce7d7100bc16c88c74272b260. Explanation from Eric Paris: SELinux policy can specify if it should use a filesystem's xattrs or not. In current policy we have a specification that fuse should not use xattrs but fuse.glusterfs should use xattrs. This patch has a bug in which non-glusterfs filesystems would match the rule saying fuse.glusterfs should use xattrs. If both fuse and the particular filesystem in question are not written to handle xattr calls during the mount command, they will deadlock. I have fixed the bug to do proper matching, however I believe a revert is still the correct solution. The reason I believe that is because the code still does not work. The s_subtype is not set until after the SELinux hook which attempts to match on the ".gluster" portion of the rule. So we cannot match on the rule in question. The code is useless.
