yep, mtab is certainly not the place anymore.  Either fstab or initscripts and the apparmor initscripts should be trying to mount securityfs.

Also I would avoid /etc/fstab if you are using mountall, it should work but there have been bugs in the past where custom kernels result in the system not booting, because mountall is blocking on trying to mount securityfs
