Worrying AVC messages

I'm seeing a lot of AVC message, a sample of which is

type=AVC msg=audit(1162463326.809:49): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=4186 
comm="postmap" name="nscd" dev=hdb1 ino=195773

type=AVC msg=audit(1162483288.034:31): avc:  denied  { write } for  pid=5804 
comm="ip" name="[23145]" dev=pipefs ino=23145

type=AVC msg=audit(1162483738.762:39): avc:  denied  { write } for  pid=7191 
comm="ip" name="[27659]" dev=pipefs ino=27659

type=AVC msg=audit(1169284673.188:58): avc:  denied  { ioctl } for  pid=4212 
comm="smartd" name="hda" dev=tmpfs ino=879

type=AVC msg=audit(1162495544.436:62): avc:  denied  { write } for  pid=28024 
comm="setfiles" name="[120832]" dev=pipefs ino=120832

type=AVC_PATH msg=audit(1169310171.523:150):  path="/dev/bus/usb/001/004"
type=AVC msg=audit(1169310172.778:151): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=2996 
comm="hald-addon-stor" name="hdd" dev=tmpfs ino=7431

I don't really understand what is going on.  'postmap' to me implies postfix, 
which seems odd.

There are many such messages about smartd.  This is something I'd want to be 
working.  Why is this blocked?  Can/Should I enable it?  How?

I looked at /dev/bus/usb/001/004 but I can't tell what this is.  I'm guessing 
that it's a card-reader, but it's sheer guesswork.

I'd be glad of any hints.  SELinux hasn't really caused me any problems up to 
now, but one of my projects, which I'll address in a later thread, may be 
being blocked, so I need to start to understand more.
