  selinux: changes to support newer hugetlbfs restrictions

Newer selinux base policies now split out 'map' actions, as well as
adding more explicit checks for hugetlbfs objects.  Where previously these
weren't required, recent changes have flagged the allocation of hugepages
and subsequent clearing.  This means that the hugepage storage information
for the DPDK .rte_config, and clearing actions copying from /dev/zero will
trigger selinux denials.

This commit allows openvswitch to have more permissions for the hugetlbfs
allocation and use.
