Search archive for the recent thres "USB passthrough", I guess it
would be of some help.

That update was probably in "updates-testing" so you should have run
something like:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update selinux-policy-targeted

In the meantime it seems it got pushed to stable so you should be able
to find the package with a regular yum update (I'm downloading it
right now)
