The XACE-SELINUX branch contains a rework of the devPrivates system used 
to store private data, a new version of the XACE (X Access Control 
Extension) security hook framework, a protocol name registry, a reworked 
XC-SECURITY extension (disabled by default), and an under-development 
SELinux extension (also disabled by default).

I've been running GNOME on it without any issues, all the major drivers 
compile against it and I've tested with vesa and intel (and continue to 
rebuild and test).  I've put up the complete patchset with some basic 
annotations at

The total damage from the patch is 398 files changed, 7785 
insertions(+), 7604 deletions(-).  I think it's about ready to land on 
master; I have been working on the branch for 18 months and will 
continue working in master.
