Thanks a lot for your explanation, now I see that my proposal does not
make any sense. Your suggestion works fine and virt-aa-helper produces
correct output.

Do you think this situation should ideally be diagnosed by higher-level
tools such as virt-manager which right now emit a generic permission
denied error?

Maybe virt-aa-helper could also emit a comment into the apparmor profile
saying something like "image.img has a backing image xyz.img but it was
not probed because its format is not recorded into the overlay image"?
