Is SELinux in enforcing mode ?  It is quite likley that we'll need to
update the policy to allow QEMU to use UNIX domain sockets here, since
historically we've only had to allow PTYs.

If SELinux isn't enforcing,t hen the other candidate is that the QEMU
driver is configured to run VMs are 'qemu' user account, and the 
/var/run/libvirt/qemu directory is mistakenly owned by 'root'
