These functions allow an application to manipulate the fields of
a security context string without requiring it to know the format
of the string.
context_new() returns a new context initialized to a context
context_str() returns a pointer to the string value of the
context_t, valid until the next call to context_str() or
context_free() for the same context_t*.
context_free() frees the storage used by a context.
context_type_get(), context_range_get(), context_role_get(),
context_user_get() get a pointer to the string value of a context
Note: Values returned by the get functions are only valid until
the next call to a set function or context_free() for the same
context_type_set(), context_range_set(), context_role_set(),
context_user_set() set a context component.
