I think all you need to do is omit the -v from restorecon if they didn't
ask for verbose output (or use -p instead if you want some indication of
progress).  fixfiles is just a wrapper script around setfiles and
restorecon with some additional functionality, but in this case I'm not
sure it adds anything.
