Hm. there are tons of processes in kernel_t, in fact almost everything
but sshd initiated processes, httpd, rotatelog and spamd.

Maybe I need to restart init yet another time (e.g. reboot). Would
that make sense?

I'll reboot the system in ~9h and check again whether any process but
kernel threads got lost in kernel_t.
