This is a leaked file descriptor from RT2500 Wireless RutiiT. All open file
descrioptors should be closed on exec before executing the confined application.
SELinux will just close the open file descriptors and the app should run
properly. You should report this as a bug to the RT2500 Wireless RutiiT. They
fcntl(fd, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC) on their open descriptors.
If you want to just get rid of the AVC you can use audit2allow to write a policy
module to allow the access.
# grep dhcp /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mydhcp
# semodule -i mydhcp.pp
Closing wontfix since this is not our bug.
