Upgrading from Fedora 39 to 40

Upgraded to Fedora 40 following the normal procedure  hoping that it might resolve an annoying issue that started in April where SELinux kept alerting that dns_resolver is trying to setattr.  The issue is very similar to this bug except it's setting a different key.

The upgrade went without any problems but the same alerting continued.  It seems like it is caused when trying to mount an smb shared drive.  For these issues, I can usually wait for a few days and a fix is issued but in this case the bug remains open and the frequency of the alert seemed to have increased.  :-(
