[PATCH v2 0/3] nvdimm: read-only file support

Posted by Stefan Hajnoczi 2 weeks ago
v2:
 * s/the the/the/ in documentation [Philippe]
 * Assign nvdimm->unarmed earlier [Philippe]

There is currently no way to back an NVDIMM with a read-only file so it can be
safely shared between untrusted guests.

Introduce an -object memory-backend-file,readonly=on|off option.

Julio Montes sent an earlier patch here:
https://patchew.org/QEMU/20190708211936.8037-1-julio.montes@intel.com/

Eric Ernst requested this feature again for Kata Containers so I gave it a try.

Stefan Hajnoczi (3):
  memory: add readonly support to memory_region_init_ram_from_file()
  hostmem-file: add readonly=on|off option
  nvdimm: honor -object memory-backend-file,readonly=on option
