[PATCH 3/8] apparmor: allow virt-aa-helper nameservices

Since quite a while libvirt-aa-helper triggers nss related apparmor
denials like:
 operation="open" profile="virt-aa-helper" name="/etc/nsswitch.conf"
 operation="open" profile="virt-aa-helper" name="/etc/host.conf"
 operation="open" profile="virt-aa-helper" name="/etc/resolv.conf"
 operation="open" profile="virt-aa-helper" name="/etc/hosts"

Rules to allow these are in Debian [1] / Ubuntu [2] since quite a
while but do not seem to be specific to those distributions.

There can be much more reasons than one would think to inadvertently
use/trigger nameservices as can be seen in the comments in
profiles/apparmor.d/abstractions/nameservice at [3].
The nameservices abstraction provides a nice and upgrade safe
way to cover all of them.
