Hi Keith,

I chose option (3) and renamed the requests.  The SELinux extension
doesn't have a traditional Xlib client side that needs to be changed,
only XCB support.  I have an XCB patch ready to alias the old names.

Please pull these updates into master.


The following changes are available in the git repository at:

Eamon Walsh (8):
      xselinux: Allow SetWindowCreateContext to be used for pixmaps as well.
      libselinux now has a pkgconfig file.  Use it.
      Revert "Remove some debug messages that trigger on XACE event delivery failure."
      Don't print a failure message when XACE denies an input event delivery.
      xselinux: Remove reference counting calls for SID objects.
      xselinux: Allow GetWindowContext to be used for pixmaps as well.
      xselinux: Rename window-related requests that now support pixmaps.
      xselinux: Bump extension minor version.
