[refpolicy] [PATCH 5/5] Give kmod access to tmpfiles

Upon boot, the kmod application (running as insmod_t) can generate a
tmpfiles configuration file to allow tmpfiles to relabel and set the
required static device nodes for the kernel:

kmod static-nodes --format=tmpfiles --output=/run/tmpfiles.d/kmod.conf

This requires the insmod_t domain to have create/write privileges
towards the /run/tmpfiles.d location.
