So why not do it properly this time and help fix this upstream?

Can you remove your custom modules and enclose raw AVC denials please?

Show us raw AVC denials, also for the rules you added below. Also use

What is running initrc_t? Can you show the raw avc denial.

Mislabeled sock file.

This does look legit to me

Yes, those comments are annoying.
