After further discussion on selinux list, it looks like Dan is going to
take a different approach and not use a fscontext= or context= mount.
Instead, he is just adding a 'restorecon /tmp' line
to /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit so that it will get relabeled to tmp_t at that
time, and Dan recently added the following to the policy:
	allow tmpfile tmpfs_t:filesystem associate;

This is similar to how tmpfs mounts are being handled for /dev for use
by udev.
