[libvirt] [PATCH 4/7] Fix potential deadlock across fork() in QEMU driver



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

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=964358

The hook scripts used by virCommand must be careful wrt
accessing any mutexes that may have been held by other
threads in the parent process. With the recent refactoring
there are 2 potential flaws lurking, which will become real
deadlock bugs once the global QEMU driver lock is removed.

Remove use of the QEMU driver lock from the hook function
by passing in the 'virQEMUDriverConfigPtr' instance directly.

Add functions to the virSecurityManager to be invoked before
and after fork, to ensure the mutex is held by the current
thread. This allows it to be safely used in the hook script
in the child process.
