SELinux only relies on GRUB for passing in selinux=1 /
apparmor.enabled=0, correct?

This system is actually upgraded from a stock Jaunty install so it's
currently running GRUB1. I see selinux=1 passed into the kernel but the
userland doesn't seem to react; sestatus reports itself as disabled,
nothing is mounted at /selinux, etc, which would lead me to suspect
something in addition to grub2 being the culprit?
