2.3-9 simplified the method for is_selinux_enabled() to be faster and doesn't create deadlocks. This change broke systems with SELinux enabled but without selinux-policy package installed. This update adds a check of existence of /etc/selinux/config. In case there's no such file in a system, SELinux is considered disabled even if it's running on SELinux enabled kernel.
