restorecon_xattr will display the SHA1 digests added to extended
attributes security.restorecon_last or delete the attribute
completely. These attributes are set by restorecon(8) or setfiles(8)
to specified directories when relabeling recursively.
restorecon_xattr is useful for managing the extended attribute
entries particularly when users forget what directories they ran
restorecon(8) or setfiles(8) from.
RAMFS and TMPFS filesystems do not support the
security.restorecon_last extended attribute and are automatically
excluded from searches.
By default restorecon_xattr will display the SHA1 digests with
"Match" appended if they match the default specfile set or the
specfile set used with the -f option. Non-matching SHA1 digests will
be displayed with "No Match" appended. This feature can be disabled
by the -n option.
-d delete all non-matching security.restorecon_last directory
-D delete all security.restorecon_last directory digest entries.
-m do not read /proc/mounts to obtain a list of non-seclabel
mounts to be excluded from relabeling checks.
Setting -m is useful where there is a non-seclabel fs mounted
with a seclabel fs mounted on a directory below this.
-n Do not append "Match" or "No Match" to displayed digests.
-r recursively descend directories.
-v display SHA1 digest generated by specfile set.
