[libvirt] [PATCHv2 2/4] Enhance virStorageFileIsSharedFS



virStorageFileIsSharedFS would previously only work if the entire path
in question was stat'able by the uid of the libvirtd process. This
patch changes it to crawl backwards up the path retrying the statfs
call until it gets to a partial path that *can* be stat'ed.

This is necessary to use the function to learn the fstype for files
stored as a different user (and readable only by that user) on a
root-squashed remote filesystem.
