Description of problem:
Dell laptops need hal-set-keycode for all the buttons to work. I've backported the patch from F9 into the HAL version in RHEL5, and the results can be found in #442623. The patch works well, but the new functionality needs a SELinux policy update.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rpm's from http://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/brew/taskinfo?taskID=1430808
2. service haldaemon restart
3. Observe SELinux denial
Actual results:
Failed to fix keyboard when enforcing is enabled.

Expected results:
Fixed keyboard, even with enforcing.

Additional info:
This is a backport from F8/F9, so the policy can probably just be triviallly backported.
