This error message is pretty clear. You are using a non-standard kerner driver. Capsule
summary: this voids your Linux warranty, in a manner of speaking. Kernel lockups cannot be
diagnosed with an out-of-tree driver crammed into it.
A Google search indicates that "wl" is a Broadcom wireless driver. It's
unlikely that you've been running the same exact kernel version for all the years
you've said you had no issues. You must've been updating kernels all along, and
doing whatever is needed to recompile the wl driver for each new kernel version. So the
most likely answer, based on all available facts, is that the wl driver is no longer
compatible with the current Fedora kernel, or exhibits a bug under it.
Perhaps you can try updating the wl module, with the current kernel. Or try booting the
previous kernel, and see if the lockups go away.
I do think it should be pointed out than nothing above shows an selinux error.
The key to getting good answers is to ask good questions.
