Doc Text:
.SELinux no longer prevents `auditd` to halt or power off the system Previously, the SELinux policy did not contain a rule that allows the Audit daemon to start a `power_unit_file_t` `systemd` unit. Consequently, `auditd` could not halt or power off the system even when configured to do so in cases such as no space left on a logging disk partition. This update of the `selinux-policy` packages adds the missing rule, and `auditd` can now properly halt and power off the system only with SELinux in enforcing mode.
