genhomedircon is a script that executes semodule to rebuild the
currently active SELinux policy (without reloading it) and to create
the labels for each user home directory based on directory paths
returned by calls to getpwent().
The latter functionality depends on the "usepasswd" parameter being
set to "true" (default) in /etc/selinux/semanage.conf.
This script is usually executed by semanage although this default
behavior can be optionally modified by setting to "true" the
"disable-genhomedircon" in /etc/selinux/semanage.conf.
