Description of problem:
nova delete <vm-instance-id>
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ovs-vswitchd (deleted) from 'block_suspend' accesses on the capability2 .

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

If you believe that ovs-vswitchd (deleted) should be allowed block_suspend access on the  capability2 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 ovs-vswitchd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
