Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 1/1] lxc: allow fallback to no apparmor.

The security_driver line in /etc/libvirt/lxc.conf doesn't behave the
same way - if apparmor is specified but policies are not available
on the host, then container creation fails.

This patch always tries to fall back to 'none' if the requested
driver is not available.  A better patch would allow an option list
like qemu.conf allows, but this patch doesn't do that.

IIUC the code, the new sec manager is created from cfg->securityDriverName which has no default value. It contains only what user specified in lxc.conf. Well, if user sets apparmor there but it's not available for whatever reason, we must fail and not workaround it.
