The initial bug, the fact that libvirt is not starting is fixed at two 
different level, libvirt now checks if the lxc_context file is present 
or not before doing any SELinux operations and it's also fixed now that 
the policy ships this file.

But I just tried now (with the refpolicy) and all the processes are 
running under "system_u:system_r:virtd_lxc_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023" (not sure 
it's the one expected here), so we might have an other problem here.

My test case is quite easy, I've debootstrapped a debian unstable 
(debootstrap sid /tmp/sid). Then in virt-manager, I've added a new "LXC" 
connection and then created a new "system" container. And then started 
that container.
