This update requires you are running the latest udev package, and also
(if you are using SELinux) the latest selinux policy packages.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
