Correct. So users can still hotplug and hotunplug devices from running
guests. In case of hotunplug libvirt will remove corresponding /dev
node. For instance, PCI devices need /dev/vfio/vfio. But if you
hotunplug last PCI device from your guest, then libvirt will also remove
/dev/vfio/vfio from the namespace.

Therefore, we still need libvirt/virtqemud/virtlxcd to be able to remove
files from under /dev.
