Patch to correct the issue

Description of problem:

5.4.1 seems to have introduced a bug when running the "Compare all managed files to system when run against RHEL4 (4.8 in this instance) clients:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

In a system overview click on:

configuration -> overview -> Compare all managed files to system -> schedule compare

A scheduled comparison task will show up:

Show differences between profiled config files and deployed config files 	07/26/11 11:28:48 AM CEST. AM CEST 	0 	0 	1 	

Then I try to run a rhn_check to force the execution I get the following errors:

[root@acc3001 ~]# rhn_check
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 345, in ?
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 218, in handle_action
    (status, message, data) = run_action(method, params)
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 174, in run_action
    (status, message, data) = do_call(method, params)
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_check", line 91, in do_call
    retval = apply(method, params)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/actions/configfiles.py", line 330, in diff
    diff = fp.diff(file)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/config_common/file_utils.py", line 105, in diff
    if not is_selinux_enabled():
NameError: global name 'is_selinux_enabled' is not defined

After repeating rhn_check a couple of times the scheduled task fails and you can find it in the failed tasks history.

Expected results:

The command should complete as expected, with no traceback

Additional info:

The attached patch corrects the problem.

client/tools/rhncfg/config_common/file_utils.py seems like a client issue ... reseting component.
