SELinux: create new open permission
Eric Paris [Thu, 28 Feb 2008 17:58:40 +0000 (12:58 -0500)]
Adds a new open permission inside SELinux when 'opening' a file.  The idea
is that opening a file and reading/writing to that file are not the same
thing.  Its different if a program had its stdout redirected to /tmp/output
than if the program tried to directly open /tmp/output. This should allow
policy writers to more liberally give read/write permissions across the
policy while still blocking many design and programing flaws SELinux is so
good at catching today.
