sshd running in kernel_t is the problem; that should never happen (init
transitions to init_t, then everything flows from it; nothing should
ever transition back into kernel_t).  Only kernel threads should have
kernel_t (init will start life as kernel_t but then transition; usermode
helpers like modprobe and hotplug should transition upon the exec).
