1.69.1. RHBA-2011:0029: bug fix update

Updated libselinux packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
libselinux is the core library of an SELinux system. It is used by all applications that are SELinux-aware.
This update fixes the following bugs:
* Under certain circumstances, when SELinux was enabled, an attempt to start a customized version of the httpd service (that is, other than the one that is shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5) could fail with a segmentation fault. With this update, a patch has been applied to target this issue, and SELinux no longer prevents httpd from starting. ( BZ#537040)
* Due to missing functions in the selinux.h header file, sVirt, an integrated solution for securing Linux-based virtualization using SELinux, was not fully supported. This has been fixed, selinux.h have been updated to contain both selinux_virtual_domain_context_path() and selinux_virtual_image_context_path(), and sVirt support now works as expected. ( BZ#582612)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
