I recall running into this issue when the control socket was first added 
and my recollection is that I contacted our SELinux policy guru (Dan 
Walsh) to add support for it. However neither Dan nor myself has 
specific memories on this but we think it might have been for Fedora 
only (not RHEL) if it happened at all. Dan has promised me he will 
investigate and get back to me. I will follow up here at that time.
