selinux is disabled, but not really, unless you update to latest
rawhide, whose kernel has a new feature that enables selinux to be
fully disabled before a policy is loaded, such that
/etc/sysconfig/selinux SELINUX=disabled can do that, instead of just
leaving selinux enabled without any policy loaded.  Before this new
feature, in order to fully disable selinux you had to add selinux=0 to
the boot command line.  With the latest kernel, you no longer need
selinux=0; setting SELINUX=disabled in /etc/sysconfig/selinux is
equivalent, and you no longer get these rpm errors.
