No.  capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) did not pass.
fs_fully_visible did passed.

There is a significant distinction.  If capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) had
passed kobj_ns_current_may_mount (which is a fancy way of saying
ns_capable(net->user_ns, CAP_SYS_ADMIN)) would also have passed.

Please go for it.  I don't have any insignt into libvirt so I can't help
you there.
