Description of problem:
mDNSResponder is starting in the incorrect SELinux context (user_t).

The problem is the use of
     su -s /bin/bash - nobody -c mDNSResponder $OTHER_MDNSRD_OPTS >

to start /usr/bin/mDNSResponder.

It should be replaced with
   runuser -s /bin/bash - nobody -c mDNSResponder $OTHER_MDNSRD_OPTS >

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system with SELinux/strict/enforcing
2. 'ps agxZ' | grep mDNS

Expected Results:  mDNSResponder should be executing in howl_t
