I get the same messages in the 5.0 x86 emulator image.  And since there
haven't been any changes to the parts of the code that deal with the
VpnService API, I also get the same exact messages with the 1.4.0 code base.

Hopefully this issue only affects the emulator image (I've no device
with 5.0 yet).  But after the 4.4 debacle I'm not really surprised that
Google (again) broke that API.

Looks like it could be an SELinux issue (avc: denied).
