There is a vmware policy in Fedora (and RHEL).  Depending on the nature
of the AVCs, filing a bug for SELinux in RH BZ might get the policy updated.

The case would be helped a lot if Workstation 7 actually runs on Fedora
with SELinux in permissive mode.  If it doesn't, then there's no point
in updating the policy.  If VMware needs ridiculous permissions, that's
what will get it closed WONTFIX, but there has to be a BZ with the AVCs,
first.

I wouldn't be surprised if RH (and by extension, Fedora) dropped support
for VMware Workstation soon.  But in the meantime ....
