There are some init scripts that modify the hosts.deny file so it ends
up labeled etc_runtime_t. Forget which one.

Any kernel developer will end up with chr and block devices in their
homedir, if they run a restorecon or setfiles on their home dir they get
avc messages when they relabel their homedir, with "valid" files in the
homedir. Trying to justify this denial, just ends up with kernel
engineers saying SELinux sucks...

If you bind mount files or file systems mount needs to be able to
read/write the source.
