SELinux is preventing /sbin/killall5 from getattr access on the file /sbin/udevd.

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

If you want to allow killall5 to have getattr access on the udevd file 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 /sbin/killall5 /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
