matchpathcon not usable from Python

>>> import selinux
>>> selinux.matchpathcon('/', 0)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: argument number 2: a 'mode_t *' is expected, 'int(0)' is received
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
My knowledge of swig is minimal, but the attached patch seems to fix it.
Created attachment 127386 [details]
Typedef mode_t as unsigned
Fixed in rawhide - libselinux-1.30.1-1
Is this something worth backporting to FC5, or should I just wait until
something more important comes up?
I don't need it urgently, but as my main workstation has FC5 installed, it would
be nice to get a fix in FC5 sometime.
