Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 24 beta after June 2 updates.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Unknown.   The message popped up.   No bluetooth in use on this system

Actual results:
SELinux is preventing (uetoothd) from mounton access on the directory /etc.

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests   *******************

If you want to allow (uetoothd) to have mounton access on the etc directory
Then you need to change the label on /etc
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE '/etc'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: admin_home_t, anon_inodefs_t, audit_spool_t, auditd_log_t, autofs_t, automount_tmp_t, bacula_store_t, binfmt_misc_fs_t, boot_t, capifs_t, cephfs_t, cgroup_t, cifs_t, container_image_t, debugfs_t, default_t, device_t, devpts_t, dnssec_t, dosfs_t, ecryptfs_t, efivarfs_t, fusefs_t, home_root_t, hugetlbfs_t, ifconfig_var_run_t, init_var_run_t, initrc_tmp_t, iso9660_t, kdbusfs_t, mail_spool_t, mnt_t, mqueue_spool_t, named_conf_t, news_spool_t, nfs_t, nfsd_fs_t, openshift_tmp_t, openshift_var_lib_t, oracleasmfs_t, proc_t, proc_xen_t, pstore_t, public_content_rw_t, public_content_t, ramfs_t, random_seed_t, removable_t, root_t, rpc_pipefs_t, security_t, spufs_t, src_t, svirt_sandbox_file_t, sysctl_fs_t, sysctl_t, sysfs_t, sysv_t, tmp_t, tmpfs_t, usbfs_t, user_home_dir_t, user_home_t, user_tmp_t, usr_t, var_lib_nfs_t, var_lib_t, var_lock_t, var_log_t, var_run_t, var_t, virt_image_t, virt_var_lib_t, vmblock_t, vxfs_t, xend_var_lib_t, xend_var_run_t, xenfs_t, xenstored_var_lib_t.
Then execute:
restorecon -v '/etc'

*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that (uetoothd) should be allowed mounton access on the etc directory 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:
# ausearch -c '(uetoothd)' --raw | audit2allow -M my-uetoothd
# semodule -X 300 -i my-uetoothd.pp
