lx_fs provides access to the path configured in the "root" attribute
of the policy node. The path is interpreted *relative* to the
directory lx_fs is executed from, e.g., <build dir>/var/run/lx_fs for
"make run/lxf_fs". Please have a look at base-linux/run/lx_fs.run (as
suggested in the lx_fs/README for further details.
