I think on GVirSandboxConfig we should have a 'kmodpath' property and
gvir_sandbox_confijg_{get,set}_kmodpath() APIs. These would accept
something like '/lib/modules'.

On GVirSandboxConfigInitrd, we should hve a 'kmoddir' property and
corresponding APIs. These would be given the full path eg
'/lib/modules/x.y.z/kernel'

THus the gvir_sandbox_builder_initrd_find_modules method would no longer
need to figure out this path itself.
