I have selinux in enforcing mode, so that could be it.
I'll try setting enforcing to 0 and booting into an earlier kernel.
Mystery solved. It's an artifact of the other problem, the piping of
command output to less automatically. I was redirecting the output of
dracut into files. When I just ran it without the redirects, it hit
several pauses while waiting for less. I just hit space to get rid of
them when they occurred, and dracut completed normally. As did
grub2-mkconfig when dracut wasn't in uninterruptable sleep.
Still no idea why commands in bash would be automatically routed to
less the way systemd does it with journalctl, etc.
