Description of problem:

  SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/lspci from using the sys_admin capability.

  *****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests  *******************

  If you want to enable polyinstantiated directory support.
  Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling 
    the'allow_polyinstantiation' boolean.You can read 'xdm_selinux' 
    man page for more details.
  setsebool -P allow_polyinstantiation 1

  *****  Plugin catchall (11.6 confidence) suggests  ***************************

  If you believe that lspci should have the sys_admin capability 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 lspci /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
  # semodule -i mypol.pp
