mkhomedir_helper is a helper program for the pam_mkhomedir module
that creates home directories and populates them with contents of the
specified skel directory.
The default value of umask is 0022 and the default value of
path-to-skel is /etc/skel.
The helper is separated from the module to not require direct access
from login SELinux domains to the contents of user home directories.
The SELinux domain transition happens when the module is executing
The helper never touches home directories if they already exist.
