Rawhide and F25 issues affecting QtWebEngine/QupZilla and Chromium

Hi,

there are at least 3 issues in Rawhide (some or all of which also affect the
Fedora 25 branch!) making both QupZilla (the main user of QtWebEngine) and
Chromium fail to start up. One of them has no known workaround. And from my
investigation, none of them appears to actually be IN QtWebEngine or
Chromium code:

1. <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1363914" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1363914">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1363914</a>
[abrt] qupzilla: base::debug::BreakDebugger(): qupzilla killed by SIGABRT
Apparent cause: selinux-policy
Reason: because "setenforce 0" works around it
F25 affected?: unknown
Workaround: sudo setenforce 0

2. <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1347436" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1347436">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1347436</a>
fedora-import-state sets incorrect mode for /dev/shm when dracut places it
in /run/initramfs/state (causes various things to break, inc. webkit and
Boxes)
Apparent cause: initscripts
Reason: as per the bug report
F25 affected?: yes (the bug was reported against F25, but it also happens in
Rawhide)
Workaround: sudo chmod a+w /dev/shm

3. <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1364781" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1364781">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1364781</a>
glibc 2.24 (2.23.90) breaks Chromium and QtWebEngine
Received signal 4 ILL_ILLOPN 7f58262eac90
Apparent cause: glibc
Reason: bisecting of OpenEmbedded changes by the OpenEmbedded folks:
<a href="https://www.mail-archive.com/openembedded- ... at lists dot openembedded.org/msg82915.html" title="https://www.mail-archive.com/openembedded- ... at lists dot openembedded.org/msg82915.html">https://www.mail-archive.com/openembedded- ... at lists dot openembedded.org/ms...</a>
F25 affected?: probably yes (it has the same glibc version)
Workaround: none known

In addition to these issues, there are also 4 crashes in the Nouveau
graphics driver that can make QtWebEngine and probably Chromium crash:

I reassigned them to xorg-x11-drv-nouveau, but they have still not been
looked at by a Nouveau maintainer.

Considering that these issues break both the only up-to-date Qt browser
(QupZilla) and the high-profile Chromium browser, I think they should have a
really high priority.

This is now known to also affect F25.

And this too. So all 3 bugs affect both F25 and Rawhide.
