I can not get this to run without adding policy, if qemu is denied
access to /root it blows up.  Sadly, It needs r/w access so running two
qemu  with different labels, the second will blow up since it can not
write to the pulseaudio files created by the first.


Added bug

I still think it might be a good idea to create a homedir for each qemu
from libvirt, this way they can read/write contents and as new libraries
get sucked into qemu, it will just work

HOME=/var/run/libvirt/qemu/DOMAIN qemu-kvm ...
