This patch is breaking things for me - with it applied, I'm now seeing
/dev/net/tun with a label of :MCS that matches the most recently started
guest, which prevents other tun clients (like openvpn) from creating
their own tapfd.  I haven't yet looked closely to see where in this
patch you are labeling the wrong file, but it needs to be fixed.
