As far as I know, an SELinux message allways has the letters AVC in it.
something like:
type=AVC msg=audit(1431804061.073:14187): avc:  denied  { write } for 
pid=10617 etc.

The first thing that comes to my mind is the /etc/securetty file. Do you
have such a file and is ttyS0 in it?

I'm guessing, that for your project it does not really matter if you use
armv7 or armv5 packages. If that is so, than you could start out with my
armv5 packages: http://ftp.redsleeve.org/pub/el7/ (which is a complete
build of CentOS for armv5) until the build for armv7 is complete.
