Description Daniel Berrange 2016-02-24 10:13:09 EST
libvirt in RHEL-7.3 is rebasing to version 1.3.1, so we'll want this upstream policy enhancement pulled into RHEL 7.3 too

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1311576 +++

Description of problem:
The virtlogd daemon is currently given the same context as
libvirtd. This is essentially unrestricted host access which
is not at all desirable. The virtlogd daemon is a small single
purpose daemon whose only job is logging. It should have a
dedicated context which strictly controls what it is permitted

I have written a policy that can do this and submitted upstream
