        src/sys/dev/nvmm: nvmm.c

Log Message:
Change the way root_owner works: consider the calling process as root_owner
not if it has root privileges, but if the /dev/nvmm device was opened with
write permissions. Introduce the undocumented nvmm_root_init() function to
achieve that.

The goal is to simplify the logic and have more granularity, eg if we want
a monitoring agent to access VMs but don't want to give this agent real
root access on the system.
