Using dir_file_class_set in the first option seems excessive. For
example systemd mounts /dev/kmsg as chr_file, as explained in
https://github.com/SELinuxProject/refpolicy/pull/144, and allowing
mounting on kmsg_device_t:dir would not make sense. Nevertheless, as
systemd seems to be the only things I know that mounts over /dev/kmsg,
it seems that dev_mounton_kmsg(init_t) could be replaced by
init_mountpoint(kmsg_device_t, chr_file) or
init_chr_mountpoint(kmsg_device_t).

That being said, I personally prefer the first option (with an
attribute) for types that are regular files and directories, as having
files labeled like directories is quite common.

In short, what about this?
--------
init.te:
attribute init_mountpoint_type;
allow init_t init_mountpoint_type:{dir, file} mounton;

init.if:
interface(`init_mountpoint',`
typeattribute $1 init_mountpoint_type;
')
interface(`init_mounton_chr',` # Or "init_chr_mountpoint"?
allow init_t $1:chr_file mounton; # An attribute could also be used here
')
--------

Cheers,
Nicolas
