The problem was that strict policy used to ship with this module.  I 
dropped it when I relized apt was not used to install dpkg, on FC 
packages, but to install rpm packages.  So we needed to remove the 
package and change the context to rpm_exec_t.  Problem is that there is 
no good way for the update procedure to remove a loadable module.  (Well 
I could have removed it in a post install.)
