Actually, the guest OS hasn't hung. It's also trying to do a poll. I
ran with strace on it and here's the output:

Send wait
Switch state to waiting
Schedule another wait
/usr/bin/strace: can't fopen '/tmp/sandbox.log.1434': Read-only file system

poll([{fd=4, events=POLLIN}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN}], 2, -1) = 1
([{fd=6, revents=POLLIN}])

Ignoring delayed wait
poll([{fd=4, events=POLLIN}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN}], 2, -1) = 1
([{fd=6, revents=POLLIN}])

Ignoring delayed wait
poll([{fd=4, events=POLLIN}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN}], 2, -1


So the guest OS gest stuck in a poll syscall as well. Namely, the one
at libvirt-sandbox-init-common.c:741.

I can try this to see if it helps. Where exactly should I try adding it ?
