[libvirt] Using virtEvents in macvtap setup code

I'm trying to get libvirt to re-associate lost connections when a vepa
is lost due to a switch error, or lldpad restart.
My take was to use the virtEvent infrastructure to poll for messages
on a netlink
socket and then restart the association if the message indicates that
a link came
I ran into a problem, that if I start the polling netlink event from
the daemon thread
I would get the file events an the netlink messages, but I cannot
event handler because the rpc client threads and the daemon do not
same address space.
Is there a way to get file events in the VMs setup code so I can
register a callback
at VM initialization time to receive netlink messages and restart
association if needed ?
