[HDGEM] SELinux Permissive versus enforcing

Permissive versus enforcing

A SELinux-hardened system will run with SELinux in enforcing mode, meaning that the SELinux policy is in effect and things that it doesn't want to allow won't be allowed. But when trying to debug permission problems, it might make sense to temporarily disable SELinux. In this case, you can opt to have SELinux run in permissive mode, either for the entire system, or for a specific (set of) types.
