That is a well-defined access control switch, so I figure it's okay, at
least if it has been checked that these aren't due to some bug in the
programs doing these commands.

You might also want to browse the changes I did to my policy.
They're all in SVN at

If you want, I can give you write access to that repository.
All you need is an alioth account and join the SELinux project there.

>From the changelog you can see that upstream revision 2337 was the last
one I merged, so you should be able to get a clean diff via SVN by
comparing that revision from upstream with my 'HEAD' revision.
I don't know if I did something to fix that audit error. Maybe I
modified one of the other macros instead to include this getattr.
