This indicates that /dev/kvm on hydra.gnunet.org has permissions that
prevent the guix build user from accessing it.

I raised this issue long ago (2015) on the guix-sysadmin mailing list.
In that message, I noted that on hydra.gnunet.org, /dev/kvm has mode
0600 and is owned by root, which caused our disk image derivations to

At the time, Ludovic chmod'd /dev/kvm, and mentioned that he had tried
to make this persistent via /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules,
but that for some reason that didn't seem to work, possibly because it
was being overridden by another rule or startup script.  As far as I
know, we never implemented a proper fix.

Ludovic, for now, can you chmod it again?
