For the libvirt MAC / fine grained ACL stuff I'm talking about, I don't want
us to build something that is tied / specific to Xen. The goal in the work 
should be to build the support such that it can reasonably apply to all the 
drivers in libvirt, so we get coverage across Xen, KVM, LXC, etc. Perhaps it
might integrate with the Xen  XSM support, but its too early to say whether 
XSM will be useful or not.  KVM of course is just a user space process like 
any other, so it is trivially secured with existing SELinux support. 

Regards,
Daniel.
