Just to be clear, that is what "permissive" does... it lets you know
what selinux wouldn't've let through, but lets it through anyway.  So
these error messages represent a passive opinion from selinux about what
 it didn't like (but did nothing to prevent).  So selinux is only to
blame for filling your logs, not any other badness while in permissive.

IMO it is better to make selinux happy, if possible without causing a
heart attack, than to disable it.  Why not start with

# touch /.autorelabel

and a reboot.  This will make sure your files have the right selinux
label, the cause of many problems.
