Thanks for clarifying this, it helps a lot.

My comments below are nitpicky, but take them into account, the style
of the SELinux code changes makes my eyes hurt.

Please move the default case to the bottom of the switch statement.

Please don't put the case statements all on one line, use the more
traditional multi-line format.  For example:

  case KEY_NEED_SETATTR:
          perm = KEY__SETATTR;
          break;
