Bug description:
  [Impact]

   * Updated QEMU (from UCA) live migration doesn't work with 3.13 kernels.
   * QEMU code checks if it can create /tmp/memfd-XXX files wrongly.
   * Apparmor will block access to /tmp/ and QEMU will fail migrating.

  [Test Case]

   * Install 2 Ubuntu Trusty (3.13) + UCA Mitaka + apparmor rules.
   * Try to live-migration from one to another. 
   * Apparmor will block creation of /tmp/memfd-XXX files.

  [Regression Potential]

   Pros:
   * Exhaustively tested this.
   * Worked with upstream on this fix. 
   * I'm implementing new vhost log mechanism for upstream.
   * One line change to a blocker that is already broken.

   Cons:
   * To break live migration in other circumstances. 

  [Other Info]

   * Christian Ehrhardt has been following this.

  ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION:

  When libvirt starts using apparmor, and creating apparmor profiles for
  every virtual machine created in the compute nodes, mitaka qemu (2.5 -
  and upstream also) uses a fallback mechanism for creating shared
  memory for live-migrations. This fall back mechanism, on kernels 3.13
  - that don't have memfd_create() system-call, try to create files on
  /tmp/ directory and fails.. causing live-migration not to work.

  Trusty with kernel 3.13 + Mitaka with qemu 2.5 + apparmor capability =
  can't live migrate.

  From qemu 2.5, logic is on :

  void *qemu_memfd_alloc(const char *name, size_t size, unsigned int seals, int 
*fd)
  {
      if (memfd_create)... ### only works with HWE kernels

      else ### 3.13 kernels, gets blocked by apparmor
         tmpdir = g_get_tmp_dir
         ...
         mfd = mkstemp(fname)
  }

  And you can see the errors:

  When leaving libvirt without apparmor capabilities (thus not confining
  virtual machines on compute nodes, the live migration works as
  expected, so, clearly, apparmor is stepping into the live migration).
  I'm sure that virtual machines have to be confined and that this isn't
  the desired behaviour...
