[libvirt] [PATCH] lxc: stop rootless containers from messing with system mounts

If a container has no root, liblxc remounts /proc.  If the
system had marked / as MS_SHARED, then even though the
container is in a new mounts namespace, the mount event is
propagated back to the host mounts namespace, overwriting
/proc.  After that, for instance, ps will no longer show
system processes.

A Fedora 11 default install has / MS_SHARED.

Make sure that root is not MS_SHARED before remounting
/proc.  I'm making it MS_SLAVE so that the container
will receive mount events from the host, but not vice
