Default What severity would this SELinux denial have for the latest kernel?

This has been reported and is being worked on (per posting on selinux list).

There is a simple workaround that 'works for me': remove the
improperly installed kernel package (via 'rpm -e' or 'yum remove'),
change to permissive mode, and redo the install of the kernel package
(via 'rpm -ivh' or 'yum update'). You can then change back to
enforcing mode.

This will not prevent the AVC, but the kernel installs properly and boots.

I suspect we will see this fixed in a real short time.
