Description of problem:
Default install of LXC
Think LVM based Backend
SELinux is preventing lxc-start from 'mounton' accesses on the directory /usr/lib64/lxc/rootfs/proc/1/net.

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

If you believe that lxc-start should be allowed mounton access on the net directory 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 lxc-start /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
