[libvirt] [PATCH 5/5] qemu: caps: Use CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE for probing to avoid permission issues



This is mainly about /dev/sev and its default permissions 0600. Of
course, rule of 'tinfoil' would be that we can't trust anything, but the
probing code in QEMU is considered safe from security's perspective + we
can't create an udev rule for this at the moment, because ioctls and
filesystem permisions are cross checked in kernel and therefore a user
with read permisions could issue a 'privileged' operation on SEV which
is currently only limited to root.
