thanks ibukun - entrance is your baby after all and your word should be final :)

note - that function is not very long. it would be easy to write again. just
examine the algorithm - check what can be re-done in different logic statements
or different order (if it can) and use different variables etc.  because it is
so short - it will still be similar to the gdm function - but you should be
just copying the algorithm an using it as a reference for "oooh so THAT is the
magic function in selinux that i need to call!". :)
