[PATCH v2] apparmor: allow libvirtd to call virtiofsd



When using [virtiofs], libvirtd must launch [virtiofsd] to provide
filesystem access on the host.  When a guest is configured with
virtiofs, such as:

    <filesystem type='mount' accessmode='passthrough'>
      <driver type='virtiofs'/>
      <source dir='/path'/>
      <target dir='mount_tag'/>
    </filesystem>

Attempting to start the guest fails with:

    internal error: virtiofsd died unexpectedly

/var/log/libvirt/qemu/$name-fs0-virtiofsd.log contains (as a single
line, wrapped below):

    libvirt:  error : cannot execute binary /usr/lib/qemu/virtiofsd:
    Permission denied

dmesg contains (as a single line, wrapped below):

    audit: type=1400 audit(1598229295.959:73): apparmor="DENIED"
    operation="exec" profile="libvirtd" name="/usr/lib/qemu/virtiofsd"
    pid=46007 comm="rpc-worker" requested_mask="x" denied_mask="x"
    fsuid=0 ouid=0

To avoid this, allow execution of virtiofsd from the libvirtd AppArmor
profile.
