as documented.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description.
Actual results:

Expected results:

or some hint in rpm(8) about what C is supposed to mean.

Additional info: Either

'C' means that the selinux file context differs between
on-disk and current policy regexes.

Use restorecon to reassign the on disk file context,
or edit the file context regexes. Which solution to
prefer is way outside of the scope of rpm.

Ok, I understand this is not exactly earth-shattering, but I was
unable to find this out on my own. I think that the man page for rpm,
or somethinw I could have got at using "rpm -qd rpm", should document
this somehow.
