What does the following show for you?
uname -r

Also, I assume you are using selinux-policy-mls?

Yes, that netlink message isn't known to the mainline kernel yet, but a
patch in the LSPP kernel and in recent rawhide kernels makes audit and
SELinux aware of it.  So you need to be running a kernel that has that
patch.
