virt-manager has no way to known the user/group that run the HV
process without requiring the user to manually set it trough setup.py
or assuming "root" as default value.

This series extends the Guest capabilities with "hv_user" and
"hv_group", to inform the libvirt user about the user/group (when qemu
is used) that run the HV process.

Giuseppe Scrivano (3):
  caps: new internal function "virCapabilitiesSetHvUserAndGroup"
  qemu: set hv_user/hv_group caps to the user/group which runs qemu
  caps: add tests and documentation for hv_user and hv_group
