rewrite of nfs_selinux(8) manual page

add note about public_content_t and public_content_rw_t types to nfs_selinux man page. Rewrite for clarity.
Description of problem:
The nfs_selinux(8) manual page states:
"...So by default SElinux policy does not allow nfs to share files..." and goes on to say you need to set Booleans (nfs_export_all_ro or nfs_export_all_rw) to allow NFS to share files.
If an export is labeled with the public_content_t or public_content_rw_t types, all NFS Booleans can be turned off, and NFS still shares the file system. If this is expected behavior, can the manual page be updated?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have updated the man page in RHEL5 and Rawhide.
Miroslav please update F9/F10.
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.5.13-45.fc10
Verified in selinux-policy-3.5.13-46.fc10.noarch and selinux-policy-3.3.1-124.fc9.noarch
selinux-policy-3.6.8-1.fc11.noarch is missing updates to 3 lines. See attached.

diff between Fedora 10 nfs_selinux man page (as shown from the man command, not the actual file) and rawhide
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
