The bug you quote above talks about being unable to connect
to /var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock for the privileged libvirtd.

The change you are proposing here only touches unprivileged
libvirtd when it creates $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/libvirt.

Furthermore the change you are proposing is a security flaw,
since the $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/libvirt directory is *only* intended
to be accessed by the current unprivileged user. Using a umask
of 022 lets it be accessible to any user.

So NACK to this
