Summary0012898: fcontext rules for sockets break semanage export
DescriptionWhenever a custom fcontext rule with file type "socket" is added, semanage fcontext -E stops working until the rule is removed. This is particularly unfortunate as it breaks Puppet which relies on the export functionality to determine whether a rule needs to be added or not.
Steps To Reproduce1. Run
semanage fcontext -E
-> output is correct, shows custom rules
2. Run
semanage fcontext -a -f s -t httpd_var_run_t '/var/apps/\.sockets(/.*)?'
3. Run
semanage fcontext -E
-> prints "KeyError: socket"
Additional InformationThe root cause is in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/seobject/

Not sure if that fix is correct or if the lookup is wrong, but when I change the "s" value entry in file_type_str_to_option from "socket file" (which is technically wrong anyway) to "socket", it works as expected.

My first guess is that the lookup in that hash in line 2134 either needs to operate on a different hash, or that the input data is wrong, or that simply the hash is wrong and the above change is the correct fix.

So it was a bug. It's fixed upstream now:

Any chance of backporting that change?
