The aim has always been with SE Linux in Debian that the policy will support
the kernel from the next release and from the previous release. Much of this
comes from upstream, but sometimes we have to go out of our way to get it.
Sometimes if you want to run unusual combinations of kernel and OS Debian
doesn't get a backport of the policy to support it in which case I often have
a special policy on my site to do it.

It seems strange that you wouldn't be able to mount a filesystem in permissive
mode. Which program was trying to mount it? Was it systemd? It might be a
systemd bug.

It would be nice to know what the errors are. Although we aren't really
interested in bug reports from Wheezy, Stretch is the current stable release.

I could backport that myself and put the package on my apt repository. Tell
me what version of the kernel you are using and I'll have a look at it.
