    Use XDG Base Directories instead of storing in home directory

Accidentally changed the umask when creating /var/run/libvirt
to 077. This prevents /var/run/libvirt being readable by non-root,
which is required for non-root to connect to libvirtd. Fix the
code so that umask 077 is only used for the non-privileged libvirtd
