  virtiofsd: drop all capabilities in the wait parent process (2020-05-01 
20:05:37 +0100)

virtiofsd: Pull 2020-05-01 (includes CVE fix)

This set includes a security fix, other fixes and improvements.

Security fix:
The security fix is for CVE-2020-10717 where, on low RAM hosts,
the guest can potentially exceed the maximum fd limit.
This fix adds some more configuration so that the user
can explicitly set the limit.
Thank you to Yuval Avrahami for reporting this.


Recursive mounting of the exported directory is now used in
the sandbox, such that if there was a mount underneath present at
the time the virtiofsd was started, that mount is also
visible to the guest; in the existing code, only mounts that
happened after startup were visible.

Security improvements:

The jailing for /proc/self/fd is improved - but it's something
that shouldn't be accessible anyway.

Most capabilities are now dropped at startup; again this shouldn't
change any behaviour but is extra protection.
