[PATCH] --secontext: Implement displaying of expected context upon mismatch

I have some questions regarding using qualify_tokens() for --secontext.

We have --secontext enabled as soon as "type" is present, and using 
"mismatch" only implies "type" as well.

In a nutshell "type" is always there, unless "--secontext=none" is 

But what would something like below mean?



Finally should I also implement the qualifiers as "-e expr" argument as 

Or should I implement --secontext as a no-arg option and rest as 
qualifiers, as shown below:

--secontext -e secontext=full,mismatch
