Update SELinux policy to allow external nginx

Robert Marshall requested to merge 6368-support-external-nginx-selinux into master

What does this MR do?

Allows invocations from the context httpd_t to gitlab_shell_t on systems with SELinux enforcing.

This allows external nginx and other services flagged for httpd_t to execute as expected.
