hmm, well, probably you want to keep sensor stuff on
the host, or inside a very trusted guest, with the
necessary capabilities and devices (no idea what those
would be exactly), because snesors often use stuff like
i2c or smbus which can easily kill a kernel and/or add
big latencies ...

if you want to figure the 'requirements' starting with
an unlimited guest and removing capabilities/devices
would be a good approach ...
