Description Paul Moore 2006-11-17 17:58:41 EST
Description of problem:
NetLabel emits audit messages even when syscall auditing is disabled, i.e.
'auditctl -e 0'.  A patch has been introduced upstream which addresses this problem.

 * http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-netdev&m=116380356104867&w=2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All NetLabel enabled kernels

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. auditctl -e 0
2. cat /dev/null > /var/log/audit/audit.log
3. netlabelctl -p unlbl accept on
4. grep "MAC_UNLBL_ALLOW" /var/log/audit/audit.log
Actual results:
You will see the following audit message:
type=MAC_UNLBL_ALLOW msg=audit(1163723958.855:43): netlabel: auid=0
subj=root:sysadm_r:sysadm_t:s0-s15:c0.c1023 unlbl_accept=1 old=1

Expected results:
No audit message should be seen in the audit log.
