[libvirt] [PATCH 00/18] Implement original label remembering

Dear list,

there were several attempts in the past to implement this feature, but
none of them was successful. The problem is that we change security
labels when starting a domain but never record the original labels
therefore when restoring the labels back in domain shutdown phase we
have to go with root:root or restorecon. This is not user friendly.

Now that we have metadata locking implemented we have exclusive access
to the files we are touching and therefore can call functions to record
the original owner. Since this database needs to be distributed
(consider multiple daemons and an network file system) it can't be
stored inside a daemon (libvirtd knows nothing about other daemons
running on distant hosts). Therefore the next option is to store it with
the files themselves - in XATTRs.

There is one caveat though. A file can be passed to multiple domains at
the same time (for instance an installation ISO), therefore we need a
reference counter so that the only the last label restore call actually
restores the original owner. A picture is worth more than a thousand

Even though I'm showing DAC only in my example, it's the same story with

Of course, this plays nicely with filesystems that don't support XATTRs,
which there are not that much, but unfortunately NFS is one of them :(
