[libvirt] [PATCH v2 3/5] apparmor: allow expected /tmp access patterns



Several cases were found needing /tmp, for example ceph will try to list /tmp
This is a compromise of security and usability:
 - we only allow generally enumerating the base dir
 - enumerating anything deeper in the dir is at least guarded by the
   "owner" restriction, but while that protects files of other services
   it won't protect qemu instances against each other as they usually run
   with the same user.
 - even with the owner restriction we only allow read for the wildcard
   path
