spice: add SASL support
Turn on SASL support by appending "sasl" to the spice arguments, which requires that the client use SASL to authenticate with the spice. The exact choice of authentication method used is controlled from the system / user's SASL configuration file for the 'qemu' service. This is typically found in /etc/sasl2/qemu.conf. If running QEMU as an unprivileged user, an environment variable SASL_CONF_PATH can be used to make it search alternate locations for the service config. While some SASL auth methods can also provide data encryption (eg GSSAPI), it is recommended that SASL always be combined with the 'tls' and 'x509' settings to enable use of SSL and server certificates. This ensures a data encryption preventing compromise of authentication credentials. It requires support from spice 0.8.1.
