      .`selinux` role now supports configuring SELinux in disabled mode

      With this update, the `selinux` RHEL System Role supports configuring SELinux ports, file contexts, and boolean mappings on nodes that have SELinux set to disabled. This is useful for configuration scenarios before you enable SELinux to permissive or enforcing mode on a system.

      It is possible to configure SELinux on nodes with SELinux disabled before they're switch to permissive/enforcing. The only requirement is that targeted SELinux policy (or a policy configured in /etc/selinux/config) needs to be installed.

      Fixes: https://github.com/linux-system-roles/selinux/issues/188

      Note that boolean settings doesn't work work even with `ignore_selinux_state=true` - it's a bug in seboolean module which uses `selinux.security_get_boolean_names()` instead of `seobject` API from semanage.

      Enhancement: SELinux ports, fcontexts, booleans mappings can be configured on nodes with SELinux disabled.

      Reason: It should be possible to configure SELinux - ports, fcontexts, booleans - on nodes with SELinux disabled before they're switch to permissive/enforcing.

      Result: It is possible to configure SELinux on nodes with SELinux disabled before they're switch to permissive/enforcing.
