Port notes

The default socket path for the libvirt client is ${prefix}/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock, which might cause problems when you want to attach to a remote libvirtd instance. In this case, remember to also specify the socket path for the remote side, which is usually /var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock. For example to connect to a remote host with virsh:
$ virsh -c qemu+ssh://user@host/system?socket=/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock
