udev strangeness with latest rawhide

Running the latest rawhide I get AVC messages indicating that /bin/udev 
(not /sbin/udev) is running in kernel_t during the early stages of system 

/bin/udev is the file name used in the initrd!  So it seems that after the SE 
Linux policy is loaded (IE after /sbin/init has been run from the main root 
fs) there is still a copy of udev from the initrd being run.  This seems to 
be a bug in initrd that could lead to inconsistent behaviour.  I'm not sure 
how this comes about (and of course apart from SE Linux messages in the 
kernel message log all the evidence is gone by the time the system is ready 
to login).

Any suggestions on how to debug this?
