That's puzzling; init is in the correct domain (init_t) but mingetty and
sshd are in kernel_t rather than getty_t  init starts life in kernel_t,
then re-execs into init_t after loading policy, then performs normal
startup.  But there are no transitions back into kernel_t.  And the
files appear to have the right contexts.
