Please tell if there is a way to turn off the selinux after

Booting with selinux=0 disables SELinux at boot time. So if you have
tried doing that and it didn't help, then the problem is very unlikely
to be related to SELinux at all.
I already tried passing selinux=0, enforcing=0, disable=1. But
looks the selinux policy to disallow ioctl during initrd is built in
SELinux policy isn't loaded until /sbin/init runs. And SELinux allows
everything until policy is loaded (i.e. it is effectively permissive
until a policy is loaded no matter how you boot it). And booting with
selinux=0 unhooks SELinux entirely. So, as above, I don't think your
problem has anything to do with SELinux.
