Actually, I realized belatedly that CIL makes it possible to enable
testing of this change just through a policy module.  Attached is a CIL
policy module that one can insert via semodule -i
testextsockclass.cil (caveat: may break your system if using any of
these socket classes). Also attached is the libsepol patch.  So now I
just need a test case - will have a look at your AF_ALG patch.

Attachment: testextsockclass.cil

Subject: [PATCH] libsepol: Define extended_socket_class policy capability

Define the extended_socket_class policy capability used to enable
the use of separate socket security classes for all network address
families rather than the generic socket class.

The legacy redhat1 policy capability that was only ever used in testing
within Fedora for ptrace_child is reclaimed for this purpose; as far as
I can tell, this policy capability is not enabled in any supported distro
