    CVE-2013-6456: Avoid unsafe use of /proc/$PID/root in LXC hotunplug code
    Rewrite multiple hotunplug functions to to use the
    virProcessRunInMountNamespace helper. This avoids
    risk of a malicious guest replacing /dev with an absolute
    symlink, tricking the driver into changing the host OS
