I have a fc3 linux system with targed selinux enforced, kernel
2.6.11-1.14_FC3, target policy 1.17.30-2.96.

After I updated the policy to this version (1.17.30-2.96), from time to time
the system log shows a lot of error messages like this:

Jun  6 17:51:04 morpheus kernel: audit(1118098264.336:0): avc:  denied  {
ioctl } for  pid=17395 exe=/usr/bin/perl path=/proc/loadavg dev=proc
ino=-268435456 scontext=user_u:system_r:httpd_sys_script_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:proc_t tclass=file

Can somebody help me to figure out what is going on?  What should I check and
change to fix the problem?
