[PATCH v5 00/22] tools: enable xenstore-stubdom to use 9pfs
Posted by Juergen Gross 2 weeks, 3 days ago
This series is adding 9pfs support to Xenstore-stubdom, enabling it
to do logging to a dom0 directory.

This is a prerequisite for the final goal to add live update support
to Xenstore-stubdom, as it enables the stubdom to store its state in
a dom0 file.

The 9pfs backend is a new daemon written from scratch. Using a
dedicated 9pfs daemon has several advantages:

- it is using much less resources than a full blown qemu process
- it can serve multiple guests (the idea is to use it for other
  infrastructure domains, like qemu-stubdom or driver domains, too)
- it is designed to support several security enhancements, like
  limiting the number of files for a guest, or limiting the allocated
  file system space
- it doesn't support file links (neither hard nor soft links) or
  referencing parent directories via "..", minimizing the risk that
  a guest can "escape" from its home directory

Note that for now the daemon only contains the minimal needed
functionality to do logging from Xenstore-stubdom. I didn't want to
add all the 9pfs commands and security add-ons in the beginning, in
order to avoid needless efforts in case the idea of the daemon is
being rejected.

Please note that the pending patch for updating the Mini-OS commit
in Config.mk needs to be applied for patch "stubdom: extend xenstore
stubdom configs" and the following ones.

Changes in V5:
- 10 patches have been applied already
- rename source directory to tools/9pfsd
- addressed comments

Changes in V4:
- patch 2 of V3 was applied
- added support of reading directories
- addressed review comments

Changes in V3:
- new patches 1, 23-25
- addressed review comments

Changes in V2:
- support of multiple rings per device
- xenlogd->xen-9pfsd rename
- addressed review comments
- fixed some bugs
