[libvirt] Problems with <filesystem type='block'>



Using libvirt 1.0.1, I'm trying to start an LXC container using the
'<filesytem type="block">' syntax, like this:

    <filesystem type="block" accessmode="passthrough">
      <source dev="/dev/vg_files/vm-foobar-root" />
      <target dir="/" />
    </filesystem>
 
The specified block device exists:

    # ls -lL /dev/vg_files/vm-foobar-root
    brw-rw---- 1 root disk 253, 19 Dec 21 22:23 /dev/vg_files/vm-foobar-root

If I start the domain, it appears to start without any errors...

    # virsh start foobar
    Domain foobar started

...but it's not actually running.  The log files (with loglevel=2)
don't seem to be very interesting; this is everything from the
instance log file:

2012-12-22 04:10:57.862+0000: starting up

Running an "strace" on the libvirtd process (strace -p <libvirtd_pid>
-f ...), it doesn't look like libvirt is ever trying to mount the
referenced filesystem.

Is this supposed to work?  It seems like the support for having
libvirt mount the block device is relatively recent, and I haven't had
much luck finding examples of other folks using this capability.

Thanks,
