[libvirt] [PATCH] Don't use O_TRUNC when opening QEMU logfiles



From: "Daniel P. Berrange" <berrange redhat com>

SELinux wants all log files opened with O_APPEND. When
running non-root though, libvirtd likes to use O_TRUNC
to avoid log files growing in size indefinitely. Instead
of using O_TRUNC though, we can use O_APPEND and then
call ftruncate() which keeps SELinux happier.
