Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/Xorg from getattr, associate access on the shared memory .

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

If you believe that Xorg should be allowed getattr associate access on the  shm 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 Xorg /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
