[libvirt] [PATCH 6/6] security_selinux: Play nicely with network FS that only emulates SELinux



There are some network file systems that do support XATTRs (e.g.
gluster via FUSE). And they appear to support SELinux too.
However, not really. Problem is, that it is impossible to change
SELinux label of a file stored there, and yet we claim success
(rightfully - hypervisor succeeds in opening the file). But this
creates a problem for us - from XATTR bookkeeping POV, we haven't
changed the label and thus if we remembered any label, we must
roll back and remove it.

Resolves: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1740506
