[libvirt] Socket files in virt-aa-helper

Hi guys,

I have got a question. I need to add apparmor support for vhost-user socket files used to communicate with the vhost-user server app. Those ones defined with something like:
<interface type='vhostuser'>
      <mac address='02:ed:f3:5d:de:f3'/>
      <source type='unix' path='/var/run/vrouter/uvh_vif_tapa8396c51-2a' mode='client'/>
      <model type='virtio'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/>

I added something like this into get_files() function in virt-aa-helper.c:
    for (i = 0; i < ctl->def->nnets; i++) {
        if (ctl->def->nets[i] &&
                ctl->def->nets[i]->type == VIR_DOMAIN_NET_TYPE_VHOSTUSER &&
                ctl->def->nets[i]->data.vhostuser) {
            virDomainChrSourceDefPtr vhu = ctl->def->nets[i]->data.vhostuser;

            if (vah_add_file_chardev(&buf, vhu->data.nix.path, "rw",
                       vhu->type) != 0)
                goto cleanup;

However, there is a restriction for the socket file types in valid_path() function:
        switch (sb.st_mode & S_IFMT) {
            case S_IFSOCK:
                return 1;
That prevents this from working.

May I ask why the socket file types are restricted? Vhost-user uses sockets so if I want to use apparmor virt-aa-helper has to be able to add the line for the socket file into /etc/apparmor.d/libvirt/libvirt-UUID.files.
