[Libguestfs] [PATCH] daemon: fix directory outside current root when executing commands



When executing a command, we temporarily chroot, fork and exec the command, then
chroot back. We intentionally don't chdir in the parent process so that we can
'jailbreak' the chroot later. However, this has the effect that commands are
executed with a current working directory which is outside the current root.
This unusual state can cause errors in executed commands which don't anticipate
it.

This change does a chdir("/") before executing and command. This happens inside
the fork, so the jailbreak isn't affected in the parent.
