personally i'd rather have it minus the patents, if rsbac works for a 
replacement. but i'm not an advocate, so i'll leave it there.

as for patches, try coker (i think it's or something like that)
they keep the selinux tools more up to date than the nsa does.
search for selinux coker and you'll find it.
i haven't ever used them, but browsed a bit on selinux.
there's also some other fun places out there,
an FAQ, and various other stuff.
