Revision 9ce56db6


Added by Venkateswararao Jujjuri (JV) over 11 years ago

virtio-9p: Introduces an option to specify the security model.

The new option is:

-fsdev fstype,id=myid,path=/share_path/,security_model=[mapped|passthrough]
-virtfs fstype,path=/share_path/,security_model=[mapped|passthrough],mnt_tag=tag

In the case of mapped security model, files are created with QEMU user
credentials and the client-user's credentials are saved in extended attributes.
Whereas in the case of passthrough security model, files on the
filesystem are directly created with client-user's credentials.
