Miroslav Los c019350a76 security: AppArmor allow write when os loader readonly=no
Since libvirt commit 3ef9b51b10,
the pflash storage for the os loader file follows its read-only flag,
and qemu tries to open the file for writing if set so.

This patches virt-aa-helper to generate the VM's AppArmor rules
that allow this, using the same domain definition flag and default.

Libvirt API for virtualization

Libvirt provides a portable, long term stable C API for managing the
virtualization technologies provided by many operating systems. It
includes support for QEMU, KVM, Xen, LXC, bhyve, Virtuozzo, VMware
vCenter and ESX, VMware Desktop, Hyper-V, VirtualBox and the POWER

For some of these hypervisors, it provides a stateful management
daemon which runs on the virtualization host allowing access to the
API both by non-privileged local users and remote users.

Layered packages provide bindings of the libvirt C API into other
languages including Python, Perl, PHP, Go, Java, OCaml, as well as
mappings into object systems such as GObject, CIM and SNMP.

Further information about the libvirt project can be found on the
