Cole was recently adding a few of the usual apparmor suspects to BZ 1761645
and I was taking a look at the low hanging fruits of it today. It isn't
perfect, but would resolve the reported issue - so I'd appreciate a

- One could break the path creating elements in qemuBuildShmemBackendMemProps
  and qemuDomainPrepareShmemChardev into extra functions and then use those
  from virt-aa-helper. But I haven't done so yet and unless it is strictly
  required consider it too much for what we want/need to achieve here.
- I haven't covered hotplug of shmem devices yet, it seems there is no
  infrastructure for their labels yet and I wasn't sure how important
  shmem-hotplug would even be to anyone.
