As per my comments in the first patch, I don't think this is critical
for libvirt's needs. We should just honour the default location that
the KVM tool uses, rather than forcing a libvirt specific location.

Thanks for the guy who pushed the patch, it's already in kvmtool's
source. It will be useful when we run the kvmtool process as non-priviledge user and group.
