$  sesearch -A -s mysqld_safe_t -t passwd_file_t.
Found 1 semantic av rules:
   allow mysqld_safe_t passwd_file_t : file { ioctl read getattr lock open } ;

$ rpm -q selinux-policy

> Mar  8 08:35:53 zig mysqld-prepare-db-dir[6557]: cd /usr/mysql-test ; perl mysql-test-run.pl

mysqld-prepare-db-dir should not be invoking any such thing.
