[pve-devel] [PATCH v4 qemu-server 06/18] api: allow SU privileged users to edit root-only options for VM configs

we now allow users with SU privilege to edit real device configurations
for VMs.

they still need the required privilege to edit the corresponding
configuration options (e.g. `VM.Config.HWType`), as well as the SU
privilege.
