Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 from using the 'execstack' accesses on a process.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests   ******************

If you want to allow confined virtual guests to use executable memory and executable stack
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'virt_use_execmem' boolean.
You can read 'svirt_selinux' man page for more details.
setsebool -P virt_use_execmem 1

*****  Plugin catchall (11.6 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that qemu-system-x86_64 should be allowed execstack access on processes labeled svirt_t 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 qemu-system-x86 /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
