mkhomedir_helper is a helper program for the pam_mkhomedir module
that creates home directories and populates them with contents of
the specified skel directory.
The default value of umask is 0022 and the default value of
path-to-skel is /etc/skel.
The helper is separated from the module to not require direct
access from login SELinux domains to the contents of user home
directories. The SELinux domain transition happens when the
module is executing the mkhomedir_helper.
The helper never touches home directories if they already exist.
