Subject: [GIT PULL] selinux/selinux-pr-20231030

Hi Linus,

Seven SELinux patches for v6.7, the highlights are below:

* Improve the SELinux debugging configuration controls in Kconfig.

* Print additional information about the hash table chain lengths when
  when printing SELinux debugging information.

* Simplify the SELinux access vector hash table calcaulations.

* Use a better hashing function for the SELinux role tansition hash

* Improve SELinux load policy time through the use of optimized
  functions for calculating the number of bits set in a field.

* Addition of a __counted_by annotation.

* Simplify the avtab_inert_node() function through a simplified

Please merge for v6.7-rc1, thanks.
