NB The example cited above needs to be tweaked for changes in the
logic from the original RFC patch on which the example was
based.  In particular, the userfaultfd CIL policy needs to be updated
to define and use the new anon_inode class and to allow create
permission as follows.

$ cat userfaultfd.cil
(class anon_inode ())
(classcommon anon_inode file)
(classorder (unordered anon_inode))
(type uffd_t)
; Label the UFFD with uffd_t; this can be specialized per domain
(typetransition unconfined_t unconfined_t anon_inode "[userfaultfd]"   uffd_t)
(allow unconfined_t uffd_t (anon_inode (create)))
; Permit read() and ioctl() on the UFFD.
; Comment out if you want to test read or basic ioctl enforcement.
(allow unconfined_t uffd_t (anon_inode (read)))
(allow unconfined_t uffd_t (anon_inode (ioctl)))
; Uncomment one of the allowx lines below to test ioctl whitelisting.
; Currently the 1st one is uncommented; comment that out if trying another.
; None
(allowx unconfined_t uffd_t (ioctl anon_inode ((0x00))))
;(allowx unconfined_t uffd_t (ioctl anon_inode ((0xaa3f))))
