Oops. Will fix.

We talked about this decision on the last thread [1], and I think you
mentioned that either the unlabeled or the kernel SID approach would
be defensible. Using the unlabeled SID seems more "honest" to me than
using the kernel SID: the unlabeled SID says "we don't know", while
using kernel SID would be making an affirmative claim that the
anonymous inode belongs to the kernel, and claim wouldn't be true.
That's why I'm leaning toward the unlabeled approach right now.
