I also want to change priv->libDir name to priv->runDir. But this might relate a lot of file change.
Currently priv->libDir only save monitor.sock and master-key.aes. All those file need clear at system reset.
So it make sense to change priv->libDir from /var/lib/libvirt/qemu to /var/run/libvirt/qemu

libDir is almost certainly just a historical accident. Conceptually runDir makes more sense since this requires no storage across reboots.
