Please send your patches in-line so that we can easily comment on them.

Here is one thing that can be improved in your patch:

This is how its supposed to be:

/lib/systemd/system/alsa-.*\.service --

These are not optimal and its inconsistent with above:

/lib/systemd/system/named.service --

You see:

# grep system /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/*.subs_dist
/run/systemd/system /usr/lib/systemd/system
/run/systemd/generator /usr/lib/systemd/system
/etc/systemd/system /usr/lib/systemd/system

So /etc/systemd/system is equivalent to /usr/lib/systemd/system

Now consider me having a name daemon dns server on each of my two
networks. Then i need a instance for each. So i create two "named" unit
files in /etc/systemd/system/named_{network1,network2}.service 

So we can use the .* wildcard to catch these?

So i would suggest we create file contexts for unit files with .*
consistently to catch prefixed service files
