NAME         top

       matchpathcon_checkmatches, matchpathcon_filespec_add,
       matchpathcon_filespec_destroy, matchpathcon_filespec_eval - check
       and report whether any specification index has no matches with
       any inode. Maintenance and statistics on inode associations

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       void matchpathcon_checkmatches(char *str);

       int matchpathcon_filespec_add(ino_t ino, int specind, const char

       void matchpathcon_filespec_destroy(void);

       void matchpathcon_filespec_eval(void);

DESCRIPTION         top

       matchpathcon_checkmatches() checks whether any specification has
       no matches and reports them.  The str argument is used as a
       prefix for any warning messages.

       matchpathcon_filespec_add() maintains an association between an
       inode ino and a specification index specind, and checks whether a
       conflicting specification is already associated with the same
       inode (e.g. due to multiple hard links). If so, then it uses the
       latter of the two specifications based on their order in the file
       context configuration. Returns the specification index used or -1
       on error.

       matchpathcon_filespec_destroy() destroys any inode associations
       that have been added, e.g. to restart for a new filesystem.

       matchpathcon_filespec_eval() displays statistics on the hash
       table usage for the inode associations.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Returns zero on success or -1 otherwise.
