[libvirt] [PATCH] Add support for forcing a private network namespace for LXC guests



From: "Daniel P. Berrange" <berrange redhat com>

If no <interface> elements are included in an LXC guest XML
description, then the LXC guest will just see the host's
network interfaces. It is desirable to be able to hide the
host interfaces, without having to define any guest interfaces.

This patch introduces a new feature flag <privnet/> to allow
forcing of a private network namespace for LXC. In the future
I also anticipate that we will add <privuser/> to force a
private user ID namespace.

* src/conf/domain_conf.c, src/conf/domain_conf.h: Add support
  for <privnet/> feature. Auto-set <privnet> if any <interface>
  devices are defined
* src/lxc/lxc_container.c: Honour request for private network
  namespace
