Description of problem:
$ sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --format --efi Fedora-19-x86_64-netinst.iso /dev/sdb
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/useradd from 'ioctl' accesses on the file /dev/null.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that useradd should be allowed ioctl access on the null file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep useradd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
