setfilecon() sets the security context of the file system object.
lsetfilecon() is identical to setfilecon, except in the case of a
symbolic link, where the link itself has it's context set, not the
file that it refers to.
fsetfilecon() is identical to setfilecon, only the open file pointed
to by filedes (as returned by open(2)) has it's context set in place
setfilecon_raw(), lsetfilecon_raw(), and fsetfilecon_raw() behave
identically to their non-raw counterparts but do not perform context
If there is insufficient space remaining to store the extended
attribute, errno is set to either ENOSPC, or EDQUOT if quota
enforcement was the cause.
If extended attributes are not supported by the filesystem, or are
disabled, errno is set to ENOTSUP.
The errors documented for the stat(2) system call are also applicable
