If only it were as simple as "get it going in mock".  Unfortunately,
with how SELinux policy works in chroots (hint: it affects outside the
chroot), this is pretty non-trivial and is going to require getting
SELinux upstream on-board with allowing contexts to be set which aren't
known by the kernel or per-namespace policy.
