The method labels the file descriptor even if dynamic labeling/relabeling

passed along to qemu as a FD.

This is really dubious. None of the methods except for GenSecurityLabel
should be making changes to the secdef state.

There is already an exception: virSecuritySELinuxGetSecurityMountOptions().

+        return -1;

The style with nested if()s here is not following the pattern used in other
methods here either.

hmmmm ... ok

In general I'm not really convinced we should be adding a new method
here, as opposed to making the existing SetImageFDLabel do the right

I was going to suggest expanding the function prototype with a bool that would allow to choose whether to label the image always or only if relabeling is enabled but looking through the code I noticed that actually every caller would need to have this flag enabled.

There are currently 4 places this method is called:

qemuDumpToFd() - labels a FD of a freshly created file for the memory dump

qemuMigrationToFile() - again a new file FD is labeled, used for (managed) save and dumping of memory

doTunnelMigrate() - the FD's of a pipe used for extracting data into the stream are labeled, again this would probably fail with static labeling.

qemuProcessStart() - the migration FD is labelled on process start.

I think it's safe (and necessary) to relabel these even if relabeling is disabled and thus we can change the function to always label FD's.
Do you agree?
