if you put:

#define __rticdata

here, then you wouldn't need to label each datum you put in there.

Happy to see this resolved when building with LLD+LTO, which has been a
problem in the past.

Disabling selinux is a common attack vector on Android devices, so happy
to see some effort towards mitigation.  You might want to communicate
the feature more to existing OEMs that are using your chipsets that
support this feature.
