[systemd-devel] SELinux labels on unix sockets

For the sock *file*, i would argue, that indeed the "setfscreatecon" is not strictly needed, and that the labeling for this can be taken care of by using type transition rules in the security policy as suggested.
However for the "socket" classes associated with the process type, "setsockcreatecon" is required
The socket activation selinux related aspect has two parts:
1. the socket associated with the process (setsockcreatecon())
2. the actual socket file (setfscreatecon())

The latter (2) can, and should *probably* be removed.

The setsockcreatecon() stuff should stay, and the setfscreatecon() stuff should *probably* go.
