Description of problem:
Running updatedb
SELinux is preventing updatedb from 'search' accesses on the directory dma_heap.

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

If you believe that updatedb should be allowed search access on the dma_heap 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 'updatedb' --raw | audit2allow -M my-updatedb
# semodule -X 300 -i my-updatedb.pp
